Stop President Trump’s Visit to El Paso Hospital

Given President Trump's rhetoric on immigration, I believe that this visit will be harmful for both the families affected and medical teams caring for those families.

Patrick Crusius came to El Paso to carry out a violent, racist attack on our bi-national community. Many of us within the greater El Paso-Juarez community are ourselves immigrants or Mexican nationals. Patrick Crusius came here to attack us and our families. 

There have been reports that people injured during the attack on our community did not seek care out of fear of their immigration status. This is not a new phenomenon since the election of President Trump. This region has been proudly committed to welcoming and caring for people in our community regardless of nationality or immigration status.

I am concerned that a visit by President Trump will further stoke fears about seeking care. This visit is not consistent with the values of El Paso.
