“Del Rio and Uvalde are two areas in the country that see and experience the border crisis every day,” said Congressman Gonzales. “These are the border communities that are having their livelihoods threatened due to the inaction from the White House. It’s incredibly important that I bring my colleagues and others, like Congressman Fortenberry and Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall, down to see it for themselves and spread awareness to what is happening in Texas’ backyard.”
