U.S. Sen. John Cornyn says he’s excited by what he sees happening in the Rio Grande valley. The Texas Republican met with Cameron County business and civic leaders for a roundtable at the Port of Brownsville on Thursday.
Local elected officials grumbled about the U.S. government’s ongoing policy limiting “non-essential travel” from Mexico as a response to the pandemic. Harlingen Mayor Chris Boswell and Hidalgo County Judge Richard Cortez were among others at the meeting. Cornyn had toured SpaceX earlier in the day.
