House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Tony Gonzales (R-TX) are bringing a delegation of opportunist Republicans to Eagle Pass on Monday, April 25, to make a mockery of the serious situation at the border and the men and women who work hard every day to address the multitude of challenges. John Lira, Democratic Nominee TX CD-23 is organizing a simultaneous grassroots forum to discuss practical border solutions that will provide tangible benefits for border communities. The Round Table will include real talk on economic, border and immigration issues and breaking through the GOP’s blockade of needed reforms.

“I am proud to be joined by community leaders, working families, labor leaders, allies and concerned Texans to discuss our border and our solutions. We, as proud Texans, have a voice on how our border is defined, not out-of-state Republican Members of Congress from Georgia, Mississippi, Utah, Tennessee and California. Their visit to Eagle Pass’ border with Mexico has nothing to do with solving the serious immigration and border issues we face, rather it is a photo opportunity to prop up vulnerable members of the GOP.” stated John Lira.
