PHOENIX (AP) - The 8th annual Border Security Expo is set to open in Phoenix with keynote speeches from the deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The expo runs Tuesday and Wednesday at the Phoenix Convention Center.

The event also includes speeches from the deputy director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the chief of U.S. Border Patrol.
