Friday, March 29, 2013 - 9:47am

Congressman Ruben Hinojosa and Filemon Vela united together to discuss a number of issues affecting South Texas at a press conference on Thursday.

Their main topics included poverty, sequestration and comprehensive immigration reform with community activists from across the Valley.

Congressman Hinojosa commented on the sequestration and the affects on the Valley saying, "It's my opinion that we have not felt it very much except at the airports and the international ports, the land ports, but we believe there are less people given overtime on Border Patrol, ICE and all of the national security and Homeland security."
