Los Tigres del Norte will have a special performance in Texas this week to show their support for El Paso Congressman Beto O’Rourke as he continues his campaign for U.S. Senate against incumbent senator Ted Cruz.
The free concert and rally will be held Thursday in Edinburg, Texas. Sharing the stage with Los Tigres del Norte are musical acts Asleep at the Wheel and Little Joe y La Familia. Beto is expected to speak in between sets.
“The families of our Latino community have been a cornerstone of Texas’ population for generations, but are once again under direct attack from an administration built on divisiveness; while a sitting Senator turns a blind eye and deaf ear to our struggles,” said Los Tigres del Norte in a press statement. “In stark contrast, Los Tigres del Norte believes that Beto O’Rourke stands WITH our community on important issues, such as immigration reform, affordable health care, a future for our DREAMers, and more immediate assistance to our families still separated at the border.”
