County officials meet with DHSofficials
By ALLEN ESSEX/Valley Morning Star2008-02-27 00:00:00 An early Tuesday closed-door meeting with federal officials about plans to build aborder fence produced more questions than answers, Cameron County officials said.Commissioners Court members also said they were disturbed about the public andnews media being excluded from the session. “Our intention was to have it here at 10 o’clock in the morning on Tuesday, but thatkind of got changed around by the Department of Homeland Security, who said theypreferred to not have a public meeting. So consequently they changed it to 8:30a.m. at the Border Patrol headquarters (in Harlingen),” County Judge Carlos Cascossaid.Cascos said he was the only county official able to attend the entire two-hourmeeting and that commissioners had to take turns sitting in.Federal officials were not pleased that he had invited officials of Brownsville,Harlingen, San Benito and other smaller cities in the county, but allowed thoseelected leaders to attend, Cascos said. “I made the decision, do we just not meet with them or do we continue this opendialogue with them,” Cascos said.Representatives of the county, cities and “members of the public” who were therewere allowed to ask questions and federal officials seemed to answer with as muchcandor as they could, he said. “There were some questions they thought they could not answer because they arestill waiting for information,” the judge said.Precinct 4 Commissioner Edna Tamayo of Harlingen said, “I was impressed with thenumber of people who were there. The one thing I was concerned about is, whatwill be the effect on irrigation districts.” Cascos said that although border security is a federal responsibility, the state of Texas did make a $110 million appropriation to improve border security. But thefederal government is also responsible for maintaining river levees, he said.Cameron County officials recently proposed to participate in building a concrete wallalong existing levees similar to what is being done in Hidalgo County.
