State Sens. José Rodriguez, Sylvia R. Garcia, and Juan Hinojosa were joined by Hidalgo County Judge Ramon Garica at Saturday’s Senate Hispanic Caucus Summit at South Texas College Mid Valley campus in Weslaco. The senators wanted to hear what issues RGV residents want to see in the SHC’s legislative agenda.
PSJA ISD Supt. Danny King gave the keynote speech at Saturday’s Senate Hispanic Caucus Summit. King said he was not interested in “closing the gaps” but “flipping the gaps.” In other words, he wants to see Hispanic serving institutions have the best student graduation rates.
State Sen. Sylvia Garcia said she was pleased to be in the best Third World Country in the world after listening to the graduation and dropout rate successes of PSJD ISD. Earlier this year, Governor-elect Greg Abbott described the RGV as a Third World Country. Garcia said it is time for Hispanics to be proactive not reactive.
One of the breakout sessions at Saturday’s Senate Hispanic Caucus Summit in Weslaco focused on immigration. In the light of President Obama’s executive action on immigration, attendees at the summit said it was more important than ever that the State of Texas stop its policy of militarizing the border.
