NOGALES, Ariz. (KGUN9-TV) - They've been tasked with overhauling immigration in this country -- and they came to Southern Arizona to see the issues first hand.

Some members of the senate's "Gang of Eight" toured the border around Nogales Wednesday morning.

Among them: Arizona's John McCain and Jeff Flake, as well as Chuck Schumer of New York and Michael Bennet of Colorado.

The team is working in secret on a bill to change immigration and border security.

They held a news conference but wouldn't share any details about the plan -- just that the visit gave them a "deeper understanding" of the subject.
