WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) sent a letter to Dept. of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas urging him to allow the reconstruction of levees along the Rio Grande to protect South Texas from flood damage ahead of hurricane season.  The letter follows a video call Sen. Cornyn held with local leaders in Hidalgo County on Friday about this issue.

He wrote: “Leaving these levees in their current state could put more than 200,000 Texans in the path of catastrophic flooding as hurricane season rapidly approaches. It is critical that the Department permit the Army Corps of Engineers and other contractors to continue their work to rebuild and repair these levees.”

“I have heard from dozens of local leaders who are concerned with the threat this unfinished work represents to their communities.”

The full text of the letter is here.
