Rio Grande City Mayor Ruben Villarreal said members of the group have a right to express their opinion. His is concerned about the group's intent, though. "What can we expect? I don't know. The unknown becomes an issue that we really got to prepare for," Villarreal said. "I'm a 100 percent sure that with the National Guard, with DPS, with Border Patrol and local law enforcement, we'll communicate and we'll handle whatever comes," he said.
"The level of communication that exists doesn't get talked about enough. It's an extraordinary amount of communication," Villarreal said.
