Border Mayors Border Security Discuss

February 3-  Mayor Saenz met with border mayors and city managers in Hidalgo, Texas, along with House Committee on Appropriations Ranking Members Rep. Kay Granger (TX-12), Rep. Steven Palazzo (MS-04), and Homeland Security Subcommittee Ranking Member Rep. Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03), to present the Laredo Bulkhead Proposal.

During the meeting that was organized by Rep. Henry Cuellar (TX-28), Mayor Saenz described how the bulkhead would serve as a physical barrier and aid in flood and erosion control, yet be aesthetically pleasing and help develop downtown while allowing residents to recreationally enjoy the Río Grande while helping to secure our border.
