US Senator Visits Valley for State of the Congress Address

Posted: Updated:

WESLACO – Senator John Cornyn took a break from Washington, D.C. Friday to pay a quick visit to the Rio Grande Valley.

Community leaders from across the Valley turned out to hear Cornyn’s State of the Congress Address.

The senator is currently working on an immigration reform plan.

Cornyn told the crowd he did not support building a continuous wall all along the border. He said doing so would harm our relationship with Mexico.

He also expressed support for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients but said former President Obama overstepped his authority by establishing the program through executive order.
