Congressional hearings on the drug violence in Mexico are coming to El Paso. Local Congressman Silvestre Reyes will attend a hearing of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee this coming Monday at 8a.m. on the UTEP campus. The committee is chaired by Massachusetts Senator John Kerry. Reyes says it is important to get out of the beltway. He says, "it is imperative that our top congressional leaders get a first-hand account of the situation on the ground."
