Paul Bridges, the mayor of Uvalda, Georgia, is friends and like family with the Hernandez. Paul Bridges cares about his friends, a family that taught him to speak a new language. I think he believes that the police shouldn’t look at people and walk up to them to ask for any information about them. Paul Bridges fought against the law called HB87, a law that profiled immigrants, police officers can ask anybody about their proof of citizenship.

Great summary of this man’s life and ideals Michael. If I had to criticize one thing it would be to remove the “I think” from “I think that he believes”
