A congressman from McAllen is seeking a meeting with President Biden to discuss several issues related to the southern border. Democratic Congressman Vicente Gonzalez asked for the meeting in a letter released to the public Wednesday.
Gonzalez wants the President to ask the Department of Justice to stop all court cases seeking to seize private land to build sections of the border wall.
A Mission family was ordered to hand over land they own near the border earlier this month by a federal judge, and Gonzalez wants Biden to put a halt to any other cases that are pending. He also wants the Biden administration to fix gaps in the Rio Grande Valley’s levee system to prevent future flooding.
