So to all you  Rio Grande Valley Trump supporters this representative just basically said You’re not his constituents and you’re part of the problem. But let’s stop the hate right?????
The following is written by State Rep Terry Canales —-

The tragedy painfully unfolding in El Paso has left us all with a myriad of visceral feelings we cannot escape. Let me begin by expressing my deepest and most heartfelt condolences to the friends and family of all those who have lost their loved ones in this tragedy. We also owe a great debt of gratitude to the first responders and law enforcement who are working diligently around clock to secure the crime scene and make sure those who survived this cowardly attack are taken care of to the highest medical standards.

Coincidentally, not long after I heard the reports, my little ones unbeknownst to them, were asking me to take them to Wal-Mart. Living in a border community, it immediately hit me, that this may very well have been my family, and my children. As I told them we would not be going to Wal-Mart, I began to gather my thoughts through my anger, sorrow, fear, and outright disgust.

This is our reality, and the reality
is this keeps happening with greater and greater frequency. Despite our collective outrage, I dont feel optimistic that any significant policy decisions will be made anytime soon. The last time Texas was bludgeoned by a similar attack the Governor recoiled from his red flag position and we went backwards rather progressing.

What is going on? I dont know. Here's what I do know...we have a multi faceted problem which source is not always clear. However, it is unquestionable that the problem is exacerbated by our President who IS a racist and a White Nationalist. The shooters manifesto makes it clear that he was driven by the same hatred and rhetoric the President of the United States spews.

Today, tomorrow, and forever, if you support the President's hate driven rhetoric you are complicit. You are part of a domestic terrorist movement that gave rise to today's events. I'm not intrested in a debate, or anyones opinions. I am Hispanic, and so is my entire family, but we are Americans first and foremost. Today the shooter targeted people of my heritage just as the President has since he took office.

So let me be perfectly clear. If you support President Trump and his hate filled agenda you and I have nothing in common. You are not my friend, you are not my family, and as far as I'm concerned, you theoretically pose a physical threat to those I love. If you are offended, so am I. We can leave it at that! Please feel free to remove yourself from my social media and I am not intrested in your commentary.

God Bless America, God Bless Texas, and God Bless El Paso.
