County commissioner Vince Perez recently criticized state senator Jose Rodriguez’s remark in Texas Monthly according to this Times article .
Evidently the senator said people want El Paso to be like “Gringolandia”–a homogenized American city.
Mr. Perez told the Times:
“His racially-divisive rhetoric further undermines civility in our political discourse and fuels a dangerous ‘us versus them’ mentality, that has hindered the legislative process in Austin and in Washington.”
We could not agree with Mr. Perez more. The senator is an embarrassment. If he doesn’t like our culture maybe he should consider moving.
We deserve better
