SAHUARITA — Discussions about border issues often focus on the differences, but on Monday the goal was to find common ground.

A group of Southern Arizona residents, city officials, ranchers, business owners and law enforcement officers gathered here for a congressional field hearing, “Life on the Border: Examining Border Security through the Eyes of Local Residents and Law Enforcement,” held by U.S. Rep. Martha McSally of Arizona and New Mexico Rep.Steve Pearce, both Republicans.

“I want to make sure as decision makers, policy makers, those that are running for office are trying to come up with ways to address these things now and in the future, that they are hearing from facts, hearing from people on the ground that are being impacted by failed policies every day,” said McSally, who chairs the House subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security.
