Valley Congressman Invites First Lady To Tour Detention Center

Local News

U.S. Congressman Vicente Gonzalez is asking First Lady Melania Trump to return to the Rio Grande Valley.

On June 21, Mrs. Trump made an unannounced trip to McAllen where she was scheduled to tour the Border Patrol detention center and visit a children’s shelter. But the severe weather and flooding cut her trip short.

In his letter Congressman Gonzalez tells Mrs. Trump that he believes her visit would help comfort undocumented families and remind them that our leaders have not forgotten them.
