BORDER REPORT: Pascucci Shines Light on Border Crisis

SAN DIEGO (Border Report) — About a month ago, Christina Pascucci quit her job as a news anchor and reporter in Los Angeles and launched her U.S. Senate campaign.


“I am a long shot for sure, my opponents have the whole Democratic establishment behind them with national name recognition, but polls show they still don’t have high poll numbers which means people are not excited about the options they see,” said Pascucci. “I had a great job, I was able to see a lot of the problems in our state and our country and I felt that I can do better.”

Pascucci spent Friday morning touring the border between San Diego and Tijuana, including an area where migrants have been congregating for months between two border barriers about 2 miles west of the San Ysidro Port of Entry.
