Texas prioritizes anti-immigrant stunts over the well-being of Uwalde residents

Campaign action

NBC News reports that among the residents who sought treatment for mental health is Uwalde County Magistrate Eulalio “Lalo” Diaz, who was tasked with informing parents about their dead children. “Diaz said he still heard phone calls from the backpacks of the killed children in room 112 and from the desk phone of Irma Garciatheir teacher, who tried to protect them, “the report continued.

His cousin, Monica Munoz Martinez, a native of Uwalde, is the caller who called the Abbott hotline for a list of therapists, but was told she would have to contact her insurance company to schedule paid visit. Even if you schedule a free visit, who wants to bargain with an insurance company in times of grief? Who wants to bargain with an insurance company at any time?

NBC News reports that although Abbott has earmarked $ 5 million to be set aside for Uvalde Together Resiliency Center, locals say, instead, the money should be invested in existing local services, such as a local health clinic that has been around for decades. Texas Sen. Rolando Gutierrez told NBC News that the funding could be used to attract more therapists instead of transporting families. He said he had asked Abbott for $ 2 million, but had not heard.

“What my families are telling me is that they don’t want to see one therapist one week, another the next, another, but maybe next week,” he told NBC News. “So, they have problems with appointments, with continuity, and that’s very, very important, especially when we’re talking about young children.”

The $ 2 million claim is a small claim compared to billions wasted for anti-immigrant stunts on the southern border. Abbott spent almost the entire amount Gutierrez wants a stuntman transporting migrants from Texas to Washington, D.C., to “punish” the president. NBC 5 reported that the bus cost more than $ 1,400 per passenger (more than a first-class plane ticket), worth $ 1.6 million. But notice how quickly something is funded and what is still fading.

What is also sorely lacking are answers. Answers on how and why older people whose jobs are supposed to serve and protect abandoned children to die. “Police had rifles and a ballistic shield on stage, but have yet to confront the shooter in Uwalde, Texas,” Mark Sumner of the Daily Kos wrote in Tuesday.

Residents do not even receive respect for bilingual updates from employees. “Unfortunately, the Texas authorities have provided information about the shooting only in English and have gone so far as to ignore numerous requests for remarks in Spanish, including at press conferences,” MPs said recently. said.

“Initial allegations and stories are inconsistent, and these inconsistencies make it more important to provide accurate information to all members of the community in a timely manner in their preferred language,” lawmakers continued. “As the investigation continues, all the people of Uwalde deserve to know the full details of this horrific tragedy.” Meanwhile, John Cornyn Con Cornin makes sure of that nothing meaningful about weapons is surrendered.
