Flour Bluff--Members of the public gathered on Monday night at Grace Community Church in Flour Bluff to hear first hand from Customs and Border Protection officials about the reported crisis on the border between the United States and Mexico.
A small group of around 50 people, which included a handful of local government and area PAC representatives attended the event which was sponsored by the Flour Bluff Citizens Council.
The hour long session revealed little more information than what is already known about the situation. However, attendees did seem engaged and interested in the conversation. While the program did not directly address the humanitarian issues being faced by some at the border, the topic was focused more on the operational aspect of the crisis.
“I feel like this was more of preaching to the choir,” said Mary Garcia who attended the meeting from Portland, Texas. “I wish we had been able to hear more about what is being done about the actual humanitarian crisis than what is being done operationally.”
The Flour Bluff Citizens Council is a community organization that works within the Flour Bluff Community to encourage civic engagement and action.
