El Paso County leaders take umbrage at resolution they say accuses officers of abusing migrants
Posted On: Dec 16, 2020
El Paso County Commissioners Court will change its procedures as a result of Monday’s heated immigration debate.
“I make a commitment going into 2021 we will always have public comment before voting on a resolution,” County Judge Ricardo Samaniego said at the weekly commission meeting.
The vow came after a split vote on a resolution to endorse the Border Network for Human Rights’ campaign to bring about immigration reform that includes legalizing 12 million unauthorized migrants in the United States.
