PELOSI MOVED BY FIRST EVER VISIT TO COLONIA
When they go to school, the teachers can tell which students live in the colonias, because they have mud on their knees from walking to the bus stop. “It broke my heart,” said Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, when she heard the story. On Saturday, Pelosi became the first sitting Speaker to visit Laredo. She visited Los Ranchitos colonia on Highway 359.
