Arizona Calls for Lukeville to Reopen

Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs has urged the reopening of the Lukeville entry port and diverted funds to the border. The port of entry was closed by the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) beginning midnight Monday, December 4, 2023, until further notice. The closure was announced due to the increasing number of migrants crossing the border around remote Lukeville, Arizona.
