PHOENIX - On July 31st, members of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) passed policy to support the Arizona Cattle Growers' Association in their efforts to secure the border. Members from Arizona traveled to Denver over the weekend to meet with cattle producers around the country and ask for their support on the Restore Our Border Plan.
"One of the pressing issues facing our members right now is the out-of-control situation at the U.S.-Mexico border," said NCBA President Steve Foglesong. "The lack of border security has and continues to pose a serious threat, not only to those living and working along the border, but to the entire nation, in terms of personal safety, health, economic welfare and the environment."
"The issue of border security is serious and urgent for the folks in Southern Arizona," said ACGA Second Vice President Dan Bell. "We should be able to work on our ranches in peace and not in constant fear of our safety. We are so grateful for the help and support of NCBA."
