An SUV slammed into a crowd Sunday, killing at least seven people and injuring at least 10 who were waiting at a city bus stop outside a migrant shelter in the border city of Brownsville, Texas, police said.

Gov. Abbott will offer thoughts and prayers as usual.

While making sure t is harder to get a driver's license than buy a gun in Texas.

And campaigning to build a Wall and ship migrants to Blue States while never prosecuting the Texas business owners who use and profit from migrant labor.

Such is the nature of American political economy.

That cheap, abused, overexploited migrant labor that enriched the U.S. by modern slavery..

Texas is a mess and getting worse each day, the state is in a race to the bottom competing closely with Florida to see which can be the worst of the 50.

And the carnage continues, 8 killed 7 injured by a gunman at a mall in Texas yesterday before he was shot dead by police.

My beloved America is at war from within,

Every day in America. Murders. Killings.

If the right doesn't understand they're the cause due to their lies and narratives creating anger and dissonance, they're completely lost. Which they are. Just view the conservative posts around here. Kill. Excuses. More killing. More narrative. More killing. More support for the right. More killing.

All in the USA, the domestic terrorism of the right from the insurrection forward keeps to their agenda of guns, acts of treason, and killing.

They're all a bit giddy, when a Range Rover runs over migrants. It's a pathetic response to human tragedy.

Gov. Abbott will offer thoughts and prayers as usual.

So he should just say nothing, be silent?

While making sure t is harder to get a driver's license than buy a gun in Texas.

No need and it’s Texas wouldn’t pass anyway.

And campaigning to build a Wall and ship migrants to Blue States

But when blue states ship illegals to red states that’s ok? Why?

while never prosecuting the Texas business owners who use and profit from migrant labor.

Which has nothing to do with the closing and sealing of the border. Start there first.

Such is the nature of American political economy

It’s called, common sense.

when you defund the police and you defined the border patrol, what do you think it’s going to happen again, what do you think is going to happen, even a 10 year old can figure out what would happen! Do you leave your doors unlocked when you leave the house? Most people don’t and why is that? So no one can get in, doors and locks work, having a fence works, after January 6 they put a fence up around the capital, that worked did it not?

If the right doesn't understand they're the cause due to their lies and narratives creating anger and dissonance, they're completely lost. Which they are.

What a bunch of bull crap, the reason why this is happening is because of the policies of this administration that allowed illegals to take advantage and come by the millions, all you have to do is look at the graph and you can see how spite once Myorkas got into office, don’t even start that mess!

Just view the conservative posts around here. Kill. Excuses. More killing. More narrative. More killing. More support for the right. More killing. 

I don’t know what you’re talking about, but if you read the news that is exactly what has been happening, you have been seeing an increase of illegals that have killed people, now, whether that has been intentional or unintentional, that is not the point, the point is it’s happening, and it didn’t have to happen, it wasn’t like this two years ago, it wasn’t like this 10 years ago, and it wasn’t like this 20 years ago. When we saw the murder rate by illegals go up, it just didn’t happen.

All in the USA, the domestic terrorism of the right from the insurrection forward keeps to their agenda of guns, acts of treason, and killing. 

I don’t even know what all that, anyway…

They're all a bit giddy, when a Range Rover runs over migrants. It's a pathetic response to human tragedy.

I don’t know anyone that feels good about it. Personally, I think it’s a tragedy, they have no business being here, this administration had no right to allow them to come in here, this has nothing to do with them being who they are, this has everything to do with our nation being a sovereign nation and we can’t accommodate that many people, we can’t even feed our own, and then we’re allowing in millions of low skilled workers, and you see the work field environment changing and becoming more automated with the exception of the service industry job, and the way things are going it won’t be a lot for these people to do and if these people are on the streets and get hungry, what’s the alternative? I think you and I know what that alternative would be and look like. .

The Chief of Police in Houston recently stated there was no decrease in police funding and wasn't responsible for the increase in crime.

We have a porous border, you may not care, but half the country does, particularly the people that live along the border. Tell me, why won’t the msm go down and interview these people and ask them how they feel and who do they blame? We just don’t hear from the people that are most affected by this, why is that? That’s the narrative.

Go guns! Go murder! Go killings!

Deflection is not helping to support a weak argument, but Myorkas continues to peddle the border is safe, the man is actually saying, don’t trust your eyes and reports and all the video of millions pouring in, trust me. Just doesn’t get crazier.

funny seeing you write this. I know some actual lefties and can tell you the defund the police movement is, uh, to put it mildly, dissatisfied with Bidens pro police stance.

Yeah?

Yup!

the difference between the sides is that the mainstream dems sidelined the extremists in their party

Really now?

the people you are referring to as driving the dem narrative have almost no power in the party anymore,

So you are effectively saying, the Squad has no power anymore, zero?

because the mainstream sees them as MAGA’s most effective, if unintentIonal all

This is quite the disingenuous argument you’re making.

I’m sorry, but all the libs excuses is not solving this problem, none of it.

I’d say the people most affected by this are the 7 dead.

The police were not defunded in Brownsville. And the police would bot be able to stop an angry dude with a grudge against immigrants from running them over.

Seems some Americans have a real grievance problem. Including some prominent posters on JT.

But this one didnt have a gun, so its "we didnt defund the police" time.

’defunding the police’ is being used as an excuse for rising crime. But defunding the police in Texas hasn’t happened. You’re not joining any dots here.

Why do you think yesterday’s shooting is ‘forgotten’? You often make this claim with no evidence.

It’s still all over the news.

that wasnt on the ballot and no candidate I voted for has been a proponent of it.

However, You voted for Biden.

how sad and what a mistake, based on his (lack of) performance.

A claim from over a year ago, in Houston. How is that relevant to this? Are you saying Abbot failed? Is it only Houston? Is it a conspiracy and actually Abbot has been defunding the police all over Texas this whole time?

Man, that would sure make the voters angry wouldn’t it?

TRUE, but it goes back to the wall and border security and making sure illegals are sent back, also increasing border patrol agents would also curtail the problem. If you sneak in the country illegally you should not be allowed to enter for 10 years minimum, break the law and you should serve 5 years minimum in prison, that would start to curb a lot of these illegal incursions

Seems some Americans have a real grievance problem. Including some prominent posters on JT.

For those that believe in a sovereign nation, I would hope so.

The driver plowed through a group of Venezuelans because the msm wouldn’t listen? 

I didn’t say that

I’d say the people most affected by this are the 7 dead

Notice not a lot of talk about the driver, wonder why?

Brownsville has long been an epicenter for migration across the U.S.-Mexico border, and it has become a key location of interest for next week's end to pandemic-era border restrictions known as Title 42. The Ozanam shelter is the only overnight shelter in the city and manages the release of thousands of migrants from federal custody.

Curtail that and the numbers of dead will go down, if not, more people will suffer and be killed.

Vast majority of mass shootings are gang violence committed by Democrats in blue cities and states.

Democrat gangs? Of course you have some kind of statistics or evidence to back up your claim.

And we learn more about the mall shooting in Texas last Saturday...

"The man who police believe killed at least eight people at a mall in Allen, Texas on Saturday afternoon wore a tactical vest with a “RWDS” patch on it, sources told The Washington Post on Sunday. The acronym, which stands for “Right Wing Death Squad,” is a popular insignia among white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and paramilitarists."

So it’s these Venezuelan immigrants’ fault they got run over.

Not a claim, Houston is as liberal as they come.

How is that relevant to this?

Ahhh, touched a nerve now.

Are you saying Abbot failed?

Where did I say that? I’m blaming Sylvester Turner.

Is it only Houston?

Austin, Laredo, Dallas

Is it a conspiracy and actually Abbot has been defunding the police all over Texas this whole time? 

No.

Man, that would sure make the voters angry wouldn’t it?

They're mad enough at Myorkas so…

So it’s these Venezuelan immigrants’ fault they got run over.

No, but being illegal is, relax.

No. It’s a question. How is it relevant to this?

You could try answering it. And don’t say “I already did”

Is it only Houston?

So Abbot’s law to penalize cities who defund the police was fake, ineffective or you are wrong? Which one is it?

Well, it’s a no-brainer, especially after liberals are saying that defunding the police was the stupidest thing to ever do in the history of political decisions.
