Mexican citizens who hold border crossing cards may be able to travel further into Arizona.

Congress approved expanding the zone in which these travelers can go — currently it’s 75 miles north of the border, which basically means visitors can only go as far as Tucson.

But late last year, that was expanded to include all of Arizona and New Mexico. Customs and Border Protection now has to report to Congress on what a pilot program to do this would look like. 

For more about that idea, The Show spoke with Nathan Pryor, policy and government relations director for the Maricopa Association of Governments.
