Donna Residents Questioning Emergency Funding Used for Immigration
DONNA – Residents in Donna say the city tends to have flooding issues during hurricane season.
Some are wondering why city leaders would use emergency funding to help with the immigration surge.
"They need to fix the drainage ditches ahead of time so the water won't build up,” explains one resident.
The Donna mayor, Rick Morales, acknowledged $10,000 is a lot for a small city.
The emergency fund where the cash is coming from is funded through local, state and federal tax dollars.
Mayor Morales is now calling on mayors across the Rio Grande Valley to help McAllen with this surge.
