MASS SHOOTINGS/TEXAS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Leaving El Paso for the White House. What GREAT people I met there and in Dayton, Ohio. The Fake News worked overtime trying to disparage me and the two trips, but it just didn’t work. The love, respect & enthusiasm were there for all to see. They have been through so much. Sad!”

DEMS/MASS SHOOTINGS/TEXAS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Democratic Rep. Veronica Escobar of Texas on Tuesday [8-6-19] said she declined an invitation to join President Donald Trump on his upcoming visit to El Paso, Texas, as the city recovers from a mass shooting…Trump’s visit to El Paso Wednesday [8-7-19] comes after a man opened fire at a shopping center, killing 22 people on Saturday. A 21-year-old white supremacist is in custody in the domestic terrorism case. In a televised address Monday, Trump called on the nation to ‘condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy’ but stopped short of acknowledging his own divisive and racist rhetoric. Speaking with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on ‘Cuomo Prime Time’ later on Tuesday, Escobar said Trump’s rhetoric ‘dehumanizes’ the El Paso community…Escobar’s criticism joins that of Democratic presidential candidate and El Paso native Beto O’Rourke, who has also urged Trump to not visit the city.”

IMMIGRATION/RACISM/RELIGION/TEXAS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “In recent years a number of Catholic bishops have denounced President Donald Trump’s immigration policies and harsh rhetoric toward immigrants and people of color. But one church leader went one step further, becoming likely the first Catholic bishop in the United States to publicly accuse Trump of racism. In a series of lacerating tweets, Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller of San Antonio, Texas, called the President ‘a very poor man’ and urged him to ‘stop hate and racism, starting with yourself’…Garcia-Siller’s tweets were reacting to the massacre of 22 people at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, on Saturday [8-3-19]. The accused gunman is believed to have authored a racist, anti-immigrant document that laid out a dark vision of America overrun by Latinos. Some of the language in the manifesto reflects ideas from President Trump, Fox News and the modern Republican party. For example, the document warns of a ‘Hispanic invasion’ and says Democrats are using ‘open borders’ and ‘free healthcare for illegals’ to attract new voters.”

MASS SHOOTING/TEXAS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “El Paso opened a grief center on Tuesday [8-6-19] to help people cope with last weekend’s mass shooting at a Walmart, in which 22 people, nearly all with Latino last names, were killed and many others were wounded. The center opened a day before President Donald Trump was due to visit the border city, much to the chagrin of some Democrats and other residents who say his fiery rhetoric has fostered the kind of anti-immigrant hatred that may have motivated Saturday’s attack. A protest rally was planned for Trump’s arrival Wednesday that organizers said would confront white supremacy and demand gun control. El Paso’s police chief, Greg Allen, said investigators believe the suspected gunman, 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, posted an anti-immigrant screed that appeared online shortly before the attack. Crusius is being held on capital murder charges, though federal prosecutors are also considering charging Crusius with hate crimes.”

JOE BIDEN/MASS SHOOTINGS/OHIO/TEXAS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “In a televised speech on Monday [8-5-19] condemning two mass shootings over the weekend, President Trump mistakenly named the wrong city in Ohio…The speech followed a weekend of violence in two states. After a massacre on Saturday left 22 dead and dozens injured at a Walmart in El Paso, Americans awakened on Sunday to the news of another mass killing overnight, this time an attack in Dayton’s entertainment district that killed nine and injured 27 others. Mr. Trump wasn’t the only politician to trip over the details. On Sunday night, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, misstated the locations of both shootings. At a fund-raiser, Mr. Biden referred to ‘the tragic events in Houston today and also in Michigan the day before,’ according to a pool report.”

ENERGY/EPA/TEXAS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump will issue two executive orders in the heart of the Texas energy hub on Wednesday [4-10-19] seeking to speed gas, coal and oil projects delayed by coastal states as he looks to build support ahead of next year’s election. Trump’s orders will direct his Environmental Protection Agency to change a part of the U.S. clean water law that has allowed states, on the basis of environmental reasons, to delay projects such as pipelines to carry natural gas to New England and coal export terminals on the West Coast. Trump will issue the orders at a training center for union members in the petroleum industry in Houston, an event sandwiched between fundraising events in Texas for the 2020 campaign…An environmentalist decried the planned orders. ‘Trump can try to rewrite regulations in favor of Big Oil, but he can’t stop people power and our movement,’ said May Boeve, the head of 350.org. The orders will direct the EPA to review and update guidance issued during the administration of President Barack Obama on the so-called 401 provision of the Clean Water Act.”

BORDER/POLLS/TEXAS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration to build his border wall will affect Texas more than any other state, and the residents of the Lone Star State are soundly against his decision to use those powers. Three in five Texas voters disapprove of Trump using his emergency executive powers to fund a wall, according to a poll by Quinnipiac University released Tuesday [2-26-19]. That includes 22% of Republicans, 63% of independents and a whopping 99% of Democrats. A little more than half of voters said they don’t think undocumented immigrants crossing the border with Mexico into the US is a national emergency. Overall, Texans are split on their support for Trump’s wall — 48% support building a wall along the border with Mexico and 48% oppose it. The House passed a resolution to overturn Trump’s national emergency declaration Tuesday evening by 245-182. The Senate will be required by law to hold a vote on the resolution within 18 days following passage in the House. Texas has the largest amount of land without fencing or any other type of barrier of the four states along the US-Mexico border.”
