Again, I’m sure we’ll see more details in the morning.
Accounts of people using this very transparent fact about #BrownsvilleTX (with #ValleRioGrande) are both 1) unfamiliar with the demographics of my hometown and 2) spread propaganda 3) have low media literacy.

My heart breaks today for the seven Venezuelan refugees, who were legally in the United States in a migrant center waiting for a bus, and a man chose to run over them killing seven and seriously injuring many more. United States.Brownsville

I am so frustrated and disgusted. Innocent people lost there live #BrownsvilleTX. These are humans who have been mowed down. When will this bullshit end? The fact that nobody cares is even worse. You wouldn’t be happy if it was your family. Would you?

Who cares who these people are. They are killing people who don’t need to be killed. Not all Hispanics are illegal. Stop spreading hate. Start caring about people. #ClevelandTX #AllenTx #BrownsvilleTX

Texans; My God, I am puzzled by the tragic events today in both Allen and Brownsville… who are recovering from the tragedy in Cleveland last week.
