Sinema, Cornyn tour migrant facilities in Tucson as part of two-day border visit
By Rafael Carranza

Sinema and Cornyn's visit is intended to drum up support for the Bipartisan Border Solutions Act, a bipartisan bill that they filed jointly in the Senate. If it becomes law, the measure would establish regional processing centers at the Southwestern U.S. border to speed up asylum processing and would boost the hiring of additional immigration judges and support staff to tackle a growing backlog in cases, estimated at 1.3 million cases as of April, according to Syracuse University's Transaction Records Access Clearinghouse. Sinema and Cornyn said the bill is not meant to fix the nation's broken immigration system but is instead intended to address some of the short-term issues.
