Trade Aliance Chair
Burton, McCumber & Cortez, L.L.P.
I was very placed to know that you are the Chairman of the Border
are very concerned about the harm that the Immigration officers are doing to our
region and the catastrophic economic consequents that will cause the
implementation of the entry/exit control.
with our support for your resolution in reference to the extension of the
permissible geographical area for the laser-border crossing card without I-94.
In addition we are working for the
immediate suspension of harassment to Mexican frequent crossers as well as the
illegal cancellation of laser visas, based in the visitors staying over for the
night in Texas and cross every day to the Mexican border, to work or attend
their business. The immigration law is
specific in what it prohibits and the immigration officers violate the
Constitution in construing it more liberally.
