Dan Sanchez, a Texas Democrat who is running in the special election next Tuesday for the U.S. House, said “there’s no violence” along the U.S. southern border.
Sanchez, who is running to represent Texas’ 34th Congressional District, talked about his experience living along the border in Los Indios, Texas, during a broader conversation about gun control last week.
“There’s no violence along the river here,” he said during the event hosted by Futuro RGV. “We’re not having people attacked here. I think it’s used as political propaganda in D.C. to talk about our border. I do believe we need secure borders. We need to have a secure border, but the way to do it is talk to our local Border Patrol and get their input and see what we need to give them in terms of the ability to do their job.”
