While in McAllen, Secretary Nielsen and Vice President Pence took an operational tour of the Hidalgo Port of Entry. They also participated in a roundtable discussion with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) personnel from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Customs and Border Protection, and United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.
