MCALLEN, Texas – After extensive conversations with senior White House and Department of Homeland Security officials, Congressman Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) announced that he successfully secured a commitment from the Biden administration to fix the levees in the Rio Grande Valley within days of sending a letter to President Biden.

“I’m pleased that we’ve reached an agreement with the Biden administration to fix the broken levees,” said Congressman Gonzalez. “It’s imperative that these structures are fixed prior to hurricane season.
