Cuellar Questions Border Report at Congressional Hearing
Congressman Henry Cuellar comes to the defense of our US side of the border.
This after a controversial report claims the area we live in is a war zone.
But, now he's being criticized for asking the authors of the report to back up their facts.
It all played out on tape with clips of a congressional hearing aired by Fox News.
Cuellar says he’s aware of what’s going on in Mexico, and believes we need more funding to prevent violence from spilling over. But, he says misrepresenting our side of the border affects business and everyday life.
He adds that he did not disrespect those behind the report and asks the public to view the entire 10 minutes of the hearing.
We’ll be posting it on our pro 8 news website and hope to hear what you think.
