EL PASO, Texas (AP) — U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano says security on the southern U.S. border "is better now than it ever has been."

Napolitano spoke at the Bridge of The Americas border crossing Thursday, after a meeting with the mayors of the border towns of El Paso, Nogales, Ariz., and Yuma, Ariz.

Napolitano said the Department of Homeland Security will deploy 250 more border agents and expects to have 300 more under their next budget if it's approved. She stated that Homeland Security is investing "millions of dollars in the side of commerce and trade" to improve infrastructure and technology along the border.

However, she added that there is a need to correct wrong impressions about the border region. Napolitano said border towns are safe for travel, trade and commerce.
