The Catholic Diocese of Brownsville has confirmed that Bishop Raymundo J. Peña will attend a U.S. Congressional field hearing about the border wall on Monday. The hearing takes place at the University of Texas at Brownsville. Peña attended a No Border Wall rally last year.
A U.S. Congressional field hearing will be held in Brownsville, Texas on Monday, April 28th, starting at 10am.

The hearing is a joint effort of Representative Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ), chair of the Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands and Representative Madeleine Z. Bordallo (Guam-at large), chair of the Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife and Oceans. Both subcommittees are part of the House Natural Resources Committee.
