McALLEN, Texas — South Texas mayors, county judges and state legislators want President Barack Obama to stop construction of the Mexican border fence until a full review of border security policy is complete.

The Texas Border Coalition sent a letter dated June 9 appealing to Obama as the "last hope."

The Department of Homeland Security has completed about 630 miles of a planned 670 miles of barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border.
