Congressman Vela resigns from Congressional Hispanic Caucus
CAMERON COUNTY, TX (KVEO NEWS CENTER 23) — Congressman Filemon Vela, who as you heard, addressed the new American citizens, raised some eyebrows in Washington.
The Brownsville Democrat resigned from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. Vela says that while he strongly supports immigration reform, he objects to proposals to construct additional fencing and deploy more agents along the U.S. border with Mexico.
Vela says that providing a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants should not be tied to addtional border security measures.
