According to The Huffington Post, Garcia's feelings regarding the proposal were joined by the Houston Chronicle.

“Historically, replacing districts with at-large seats has been used to discriminatory ends, and such moves are often blocked by the Department of Justice,” the Houston Chronicle wrote in their editorial piece. “Only a few months ago, that would have been the case here. Not anymore.”

Latinos across the country are currently challeging this proposal in hopes it will fall through.
