Included in the agenda for Brewster County Commissioners Court’s regular meeting Tuesday, February 14 is a proposal by Commissioner Betse Esparza — a “Resolution Against the Executive Order to Build a Border Wall in Brewster County.”
“It is mostly symbolic,” Esparza told the Gazette. “I’ve talked to people on the ground including law enforcement and border patrol agents. I have not spoken to anyone in Brewster County who is in favor of [the border wall]. Mostly this is about local control; we have law enforcement here that protect the border. I think a wall is unconscionable and ridiculous.”
The public will have the opportunity to voice comment on this (and other agenda items) before the court votes on the resolution.
The meeting will be held at 9 am at the Brewster County Courthouse at N 6th Street and Avenue E in Alpine.
