RGV Lawmakers Oppose Border Wall

Local News

Ten democratic members are joining valley congressman, Vicente Gonzalez and Henry Cueller, in writing a letter to senate minority leader, Chuck Schumer, opposing the border wall.

This is following recent comments made by Schumer stating that democrats will only agree to $1.6 billion in the next budget towards the border wall. 

“I strongly encourage leader Schumer to re-consider and clarify that democrats should accept no funding for a wall.” Said Representative Cuellar, who also thanked his colleagues for spearheading this important issue and making it clear that they will not negotiate when it comes to a border wall. 

President Trump wants $5 billion dollars to build the wall, or is threatening to veto any new legislation.
