Judge Concerned Over Impact of New Border Wall in Starr County
NEAR FRONTON – A new portion of the border wall was quietly built in the Rio Grande Valley in the rural area of Fronton and Roma. There were no lawsuits and no headlines on the progress in the area.
The construction took place in a federally protected wildlife property. Local officials in Starr County thought they would have a say.
As funding for the all was debated in 2019, Congress passed language that required the government to consult with Starr County leaders on the specifics of where the wall would go and what it would do.
