Dr. Alma Arredondon-Lynch gave an interview with Fox News El Paso – KFOX TV. The station had prepared questions highlighted by the Wall and DACA recipients. Of course we all know by now she favors the President’s plan on building the wall where feasible. Her views on DACA remain unchanged. She still believes DACA recipients should receive the same treatment as any other immigrant seeking work and/or citizen status but they should first go back to their country of origin.
Dr. Alma appeared in an interview with Univision El Paso to answer questions on veterans and border and immigration issues. Alma is fluent in Spanish and can effectively converse with people who live and work on or near the border with Mexico.
