Immigrants Give Mixed Reactions to New Administration
MCALLEN – Many immigrants arriving to the Rio Grande Valley have reacted differently to the new administration.
Immigrants arrived in groups Friday at the Sacred Heart Respite Center as President Donald Trump delivered his inaugural address.
Some of the immigrants we spoke with most seemed optimistic about arriving to a new era in the U.S. Others expressed fear that they would be sent back to Central America under the new president.
El Salvador native Salvador Mejia is looking forward to be part of U.S.
“I hope he can allow us to have a better life for our kids and families. In the country we came from, there was a lot of corruption,” he said. “Gang members were killing innocent people. Hard-working people were being killed. I feel good being here.”
Mejia said he will head to the McAllen bus station and travel to Virginia where he will meet with his family members.
