1) Today is the grim one-year anniversary of nation's deadliest attack on Latinos in modern US history. A 22yo white extremist armed with an assault weapon killed 23 & wounded 22 at a @Walmart store in El Paso, Texas. #DisarmHate #BanWeaponsOfWar #EndGunViolence #HonorWithAction
2) While El Paso has scheduled a # of activities to mark the event, residents & victims' loved ones won't get to hug, touch or gather publicly as many communities have done in the past on the anniversaries of the country's accumulating mass shootings due to coronavirus.
3) Attacks against Latinos in the US didn't stop after El Paso mass shooting. google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.…

The gun violence epidemic in the U.S. affects certain groups differently, which we need to acknowledge considering it’s LGBTQ Pride month.🏳️‍🌈

This crisis is covered up by Republicans/NRA. They suppress relevant voices & tell lies to distract from the truth. Let’s talk #GunReform.
Falsehoods like this are spread: “The NRA wants the LGBTQ community to be armed, because their safety is valued. Equal rights means loose gun laws for all.”
The NRA wants everyone to be armed because that sells more guns. It brings more profit, & buys more mansions for its CEO Wayne LaPierre (while squandering members’ dues)....

The NRA doesn’t respect the LGBTQ community though.

We desperately need #GunReform laws in the U.S. #MassacreMitch has an A+ rating by the NRA, & has taken $ MILLIONS, ensuring no gun laws pass.

R’s are handmaidens to the gun lobby, ensuring thousands die yearly, so long as they get #NRABloodMoney. courier-journal.com/story/news/pol…
Now #MassacreMitch has stated he will only allow a Senate vote on #GunReform laws IF #VeryStableGenius is guaranteed to sign it. He wants to be absolved of any responsibility.

What.

A.

Leader.
These deaths are on his hands though. He requests to be known as the Grim Reaper on passing legislation. He certainly lives up to the name.

The NRA is in Republicans’ pocketbooks as well as ears, telling them how to spread fear & lies about guns to the public.

We know better.

Ending a fact-finding trip on root causes of migration from the "Northern Triangle" – Guatemala, El Salvador & Honduras – Speaker Pelosi and her bipartisan delegation visited asylum seekers in the border city of McAllen, TX, and affirmed a MORAL RESPONSIBILITY to end this crisis.
On the heartbreak of traumatized children left on the street this week when their parents were taken in Mississippi #ICEraids, Speaker Pelosi recalled Trump's now broken promise to go after criminals only – saying his targeting of workplaces "undermines the character of America."
One week after 22 people were killed in #ElPaso, Speaker Pelosi also spoke with moral clarity on the URGENCY to come together as a nation to #DisarmHate:

"Xenophobia, white supremacy, and availability of guns are an explosive combination that we must disconnect."

Today, we remember those whose lives were taken at the Tree of Life Synagogue in a heinous act of hate-fueled gun violence.

We will honor the lives of these victims, and deny the shooter the notoriety he craves. #NoNotoriety #synagogueshooting cnn.com/2018/10/28/us/…
