Large crowd gather's to hear Barber's border assessment
DOUGLAS — It was standing room only on Monday, but the people in the audience weren’t attending a theater performance.
It was to hear from Democratic. U.S. Ron Barber, representatives from the Government Accountability Office, the head of the Tucson Sector of the Border Patrol and a rancher veterinarian about security along the international boundary separating the United States and Mexico.
Noting it was more than two years ago, when promises were “started in this very room,” Barber said “We still have more work to do. … Still a fair way to go.”
The room was in the Douglas Visitor Center, where nearly 200 people crowded into Monday to hear the congressman say he concurs with the view of local people that the border isn’t secured.
