Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo warned on Sunday the rebuilding efforts in the city in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey could be hampered by the "ugliness" of the immigration debate.

"So many homes have been damaged and some beyond repair in our state. And then you add on top of that all the issues with the immigration debate and all the ugliness of that," Acevedo said on ABC's "This Week."

"I was mentioning to somebody yesterday, a state official, that was pushing this anti-immigration ugly narrative. I asked him, 'Now what are you going to tell the American people, when we've scared away so many hard-working people?'" he explained.

Houston's rebuilding efforts will begin as President Donald Trump prepares to announce whether or not he will initiate changes he's proposed to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. A number of Republican and Democratic lawmakers have urged him to keep the program.
