TUCSON, Ariz. – Tucson Sector Border Patrol will assist members of the media with access to Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke during his first visit to the U.S./ Mexico border in Southern Arizona Saturday, March 17.

RSVPs from credentialed members of the press will be accepted on a first come first serve basis. Media representatives may reserve a slot with U.S. Border Patrol by contacting Tucson Sector Public Affairs by email at TCA-PAO@cbp.dhs.gov.
