The Department of Homeland Security announced yesterday that secretary Janet Napolitano will visit Florida and Arizona next week to "discuss the department's on-going efforts to facilitate lawful travel and trade."
Napolitano will travel to Arizona on Tuesday to discuss border security, the department said in a press release. She will be joined by U.S. Customs and Border Protection Deputy Commissioner David Aguilar and Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del., chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.
They will travel to Nogales, Ariz. "to see border security operations at the Southwest border, and discuss the Department's on-going efforts to secure the border while facilitating lawful travel and trade," the release stated.
On Wednesday, Napolitano will travel to Florida to join Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., in Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. The department said that they will see customs and security operations at Port Everglades and Miami International Airport, and "discuss the Department's on-going efforts to facilitate lawful travel and trade."
Homeland Security said more information will be released once the details of the trip are finalized.
