El Paso - City Representative Eddie Holguin apologized to City Representative Carl Robinson today for comments made after a contentious meeting in which city council adopted a condemnation resolution against Arizona.
Those comments appeared in a local publication.
"My comment to Carl Robinson made reference to our inability to come together and deal with a variety of needs presented by different segments of our community. However, the way my comments sounded, seemed to imply a racial animosity. I do not believe Mr. Robinson is motivated by anything except his love of America and what is best for his constituency," said Holguin.
Rep. Holguin called Rep. Robinson to apologize.
