Congressman Henry Cuellar in the valley, visiting with Starr county officials some initiatives like a new solid waste disposal site is up and running but another..the controversial border wall comes to a standstill
That’s what Roma resident Mr. John Doe thinks. A retiree from Houston sitting in his front yard where the us Mexican border, makes up his backyard. And he has a front seat to all the action along the Rio Grande
But when it comes to congressman Cuellar, wither for it or against it, whatever the proposed initiative is, we live in an era where the first question is…do we have the money?
And the congressman sees it as an old answer to a constantly evolving problem not one that can be answered with bricks and mortar but rather more boots on the ground.
And Starr county judge is also ultimately happy with today’s outcome.
One thing is for sure, the argument over a border wall as the answer to the countries immigration problem is far from falling down for good.
I also asked the congressman if he sees the outcome of the coming presidential election pushing the border wall back on the agenda but again, and i think you really get a sense of the mentality in Washington right now, as the economy is on everyone’s mind, no matter who’s the boss, it comes down to funding.
