Immigration is just one of the many concerns the communities along the US Mexico border have.
The Texas Border Coalition brought them all to the forefront during their quarterly meeting in San Antonio on Thursday.
TBC’s JD Salinas says communities are dealing with economic hardships and healthcare concerns.
We asked him if his group was encouraged by President Elect Donald Trump’s visit to Laredo during the Presidential campaign. He says it’s great Trump came down but it’s going to take more than a day in Laredo to get the full impact of what border towns are dealing with.
Salinas tells us TBC has made contact with the Trump transition team and he’s hopeful the President Elect will be open minded, surround himself with open minded people and work hard to help with all of the issues on the border and not just immigration.
