Sen. John McCain and members of the bipartisan “Gang of Eight” tasked with carving out a comprehensive immigration package got a firsthand look at the difficulty involved in securing the U.S.-Mexican border when a woman literally climbed over a border fence right in front of them.

“Just witnessed a woman successfully climb an 18-ft bollard fence a few yards from us in #Nogales,” the Arizona Republican tweeted.


A minute later, Mr. McCain tweeted, “Border Patrol successfully apprehended her, but incident is another reminder that threats to our border security are real.”

Mr. McCain is touring the border with Sens. Charles Schumer of New York and Michael Bennet of Colorado — both Democrats — and Sen. Jeff Flake, a fellow Arizona Republican.
