Border Patrol’s busy Yuma Sector has a new leader.

On Tuesday, Anthony Porvaznik was named the Yuma Sector chief patrol agent and was sworn in during a ceremony in which his mission was made clear: “Protect America.”

“I do not expect infallibility nor perfection,” Border Patrol Chief Michael Fisher said during the ceremony, the Yuma Sun reports. [2] “Just that he accomplishes the mission: Protect America. Nothing less.”

The Yuma Sector is one of the busiest sectors of Border Patrol, covering 126 miles.

“This ceremony really brings it home to me,” Porvaznik said. “I was surprised at how much it was going to mean to me.”

Porvaznik replaced outgoing Chief Patrol Officer Steve Martin.
