That girl, Paulina Sosa, was funny when she said she felt she had to earn her proclamation a little bit more by having to wait all those hours. LOL. She also didn't seem nervous or intimidated by the setting nor the chaos she had to witness which bodes well for her future.

The meeting adjourned at 11:40pm; and all due to a public hearing that produced no definitive decision.

must sleep now.

For those of you who feel tabling this issue was a bad idea let me enlighten you. First, we are still looking for a viable alternative solution that the citizens of Brownsville can live with. By voting no to the Border Wall would have given DHS the greenlight to start constructing because they would have convinced some judge that Brownsville is not interested in working with them in good faith. In a court of law we would have no leg to stand on. Sending the message that we expect DHS to come to the table and work with us is in our best interest. UTB prolonged the inevitable because they showed that DHS does not want to work with them in good faith. The judge ordered more negotiations. If there would of been a vote of NO, it would of stopped negotiations and a judge would blame us for being unreasonable. If DHS starts the building of the fence, why not put the floating fence anyway showing America that they are compassionate to the people on the border. The ball is in their court. They introduced the floating fence, not us. If they are going to force a barrier, why change their view out of spite and put a steel fence? Just a thought.
