The Center for Immigration Studies 2022 Border Tour is currently taking place in the Rio Grande Valley, from Roma to the Gulf of Mexico. Members of the tour meet with border residents, receive briefings from Border Patrol, local law enforcement, farmers, residents, politicians, and activists, as well as visit immigration related points of interest.
