Senator Heinrich shares more on border infrastructure and federal investments in southern New Mexico

We want to make sure that those surrounding communities get the benefit of additional economic development, additional jobs, additional manufacturing, but not have to shoulder the responsibility for all the other issues that are associated with the border. So simultaneously with this effort to more than triple the size of Santa Teresa, we are working very closely with other communities from Las Cruces all the way over to a Hidalgo County to make sure that I use my position on the Appropriations Committee to fund projects that allow them to bolster their public safety, their law enforcement, their fire department, all of the infrastructure that is important in border communities.
