Webb County Commissioners Court will likely pass a resolution today opposing the construction of 700 miles of fencing along the United States and Mexico border.“We are totally against any kind of a wall or any kind of division,” said County Judge Danny Valdez. “The money could be used for something more useful than a wall.”

Commissioners Rosaura “Wawi” Tijerina and Jerry Garza are sponsoring the item, which appears to have the support of the majority, if not all, the members of the court.

“I’m totally against it in the first place,” Tijerina said. “I’m just hoping my colleagues will support me and the resolution.”

It is the second time the resolution has appeared on the commissioners’ agenda. In October, Garza requested a similar item, but it was tabled.

“We kind of put the cart before the horse; we knew we were opposing it, but we didn’t have the actual verbiage,” he said.

Garza said it is important to reemphasize local opposition to federal leaders so “the message doesn’t get drowned out.”

“I just think we are spending millions of dollars to build bridges to enhance commerce and to have relations with Mexico, and building this wall will be counterproductive to that and everything we have done as a border community,” he said.

Commissioner Sergio “Keko” Martinez also opposed the proposed wall; he believes it would be wiser to invest the money into stabilizing Mexico’s economy and improving the quality of life instead of erecting more fencing.

“It’s not going to work; you’re not going to stop illegal immigration with a wall,” he said. “It’s a waste of money.”



Just like LA county. Mexicans come in, establish their own gov't and work expressly on behalf of mexico and La Raza.

Many elected "hispanic" officials in the US have the backing of organized mexican crime. But whether backed by narcotrafficantes or not , the end goal is the same.

I too would like to see them against a wall.

Through the legal process of course.

Judges are supposed to stay out of this kind of political issue. That is very unprofessional.

Watch a joint session of Congress sometime like the State of the Union. The SCOTUS judges only clap for things that are non-political, like the President walking in or finishing the speech.

I agree, like sentry robots armed with machine guns.
