While some Laredoans want a virtual debate, not all agree.

In fact, one of the most active Trump supporters in the Gateway City said his group in charge of the Trump Train fully support the president’s decision to pull out of the debate if it goes virtual.

National Border Patrol Council president Hector Garza said the debate should not be virtual even amid the pandemic, and precautions can be taken if necessary.

“We support the president in his decision to not participate in a virtual event,” Garza said. “We believe the presidential candidates should be able to have an in-person robust debate where key issues can be discussed.

The American people expect for their future leaders to overcome any challenges they are faced with. This includes having an in-person debate with the proper safety protocols.”
