El Paso shooting: Some victims too scared to seek medical help for ‘fear over immigration status’

El Paso shooting: Some victims too scared to seek medical help for ‘fear over immigration status’Some of the victims of the El Paso Walmart mass shooting avoided seeking medical treatment because they were worried about their immigration status, it is feared.Three weeks ago, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials carried out mass raids on the homes of migrants in a crackdown by Donald Trump on those in the country without documentation.Juliette Kayyem, formerly of the Homeland Security Department, told CNN: “This is a concern.“It’s clear that there are people not unifying with their family and that there are people who are worried or injured that did not go to hospitals likely because of their immigration status.“That’s something El Paso should probably get ahead on.”Authorities say they are investigating the massacre at the Texas border city supermarket as a race-hate crime. Three Mexicans were among the 20 dead.Border Patrol officials have tried to assure people that no enforcement operations will be carried out at hospitals, the family reunification centre or shelters.> Please be aware that CBP personnel including Border Patrol agents + Field Operations officers have returned to their regular duties. We are not conducting enforcement operations at area hospitals, the family reunification center or shelters. We stand in support of our community> > — CBP West Texas (@CBPWestTexas) > > August 4, 2019Many people said they were sceptical of Border Patrol’s assurances, accusing officials of “inhumanity”.“I keep thinking about the undocu folk in El Paso that didn’t seek medical assistance due to their immigration status,” one posted.“Fear of going to the hospital because you run the chance of being permanently separated from your family shouldn’t have to be anyone’s reality.”Kevin McAleenan, acting secretary at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), tweeted: “El Paso is a home to many DHS law enforcement agents and officers. We join them in support for their families and communities at large.”Greg Allen, El Paso police chief, said authorities were now working to confirm whether a racist, anti-immigrant manifesto posted online shortly before the shootings was written by the suspect.Patrick Crusius, 21, is said to have driven more than 1,000km from his home in Dallas to commit the atrocity.Tens of thousands of central American migrant families cross the border each month, many claiming asylum.The numbers have increased despite Mr Trump’s hardline immigration policies.

Trump racist tweets: Democrat Elijah Cummings says constituents are ‘scared’ of president

Trump racist tweets: Democrat Elijah Cummings says constituents are ‘scared’ of presidentElijah Cummings rebuked Donald Trump’s continued attacks against four Democratic congresswomen of colour during an interview on Sunday, calling the president a racist and saying his constituents tell him they’re “scared of their leader”.The Maryland congressman spoke to ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos about the House voting last week to condemn Mr Trump’s “racist comments” after the president told the congresswomen to “go back” to their countries – despite all four being US citizens and only one having been born outside the US. “What I’m hearing over and over again from my constituents, is ‘please save our democracy, please save our country,’” Mr Cummings said. “And you know something else they say George? They say ‘I’m scared.’”He added, “I have never in my total of 37 years in public service – ever, heard a constituent say that they were scared of their leader.”When asked if he believed the president was racist, Mr Cummings said, “Yes. No doubt about it.” He added, “I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt, but I got to tell you George … when I think about what [Mr Trump] said to these young ladies who are merely trying to bring excellence to government and trying to make sure that generations yet unborn have an opportunity to experience a true democracy, when I hear those things it takes me back.”Mr Cummings, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, condemned Mr Trump’s attacks throughout last week as the president spent several days hurling insults towards Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley, claiming the congresswomen don’t love the United States. He said in a statement during the House vote last week he was “disappointed” the president “would share these racist sentiments,” adding, “We are still working to fight against redlining, voter intimidation, hate crimes, and mass incarceration. Our country deserves better than this. The world deserves better than this.”The congressman later recalled facing similar racist taunts as a child in an interview with NBC News. “I could not help but think about when I was 11 years old, trying to integrate … We were taunted. Stones were thrown at us. Bottles. They said the same words. They said, ‘Go back to your neighbourhood. Go back to where you came from.’”Mr Cummings’ statements echoed that of thousands Americans of colour who also recalled memories of being told to “go back” to where they came from.At least 16,000 people shared their experiences of dealing with the old racist trope to the New York Times after the president made the incendiary comments last week.

Kamala Harris, Running Scared

Kamala Harris, Running ScaredAnnouncing a run for the presidency should have been enough for Kamala Harris. In a bid for a party that sees itself as the vanguard of a more racially diverse and progressive future, she comes from the vanguard state leading America there – California. It may seem silly in retrospect, but in 2007 and 2008, liberals and conservatives both questioned whether Barack Obama’s white mother and his upbringing in Hawaii so removed him from the experience of most African-American voters that they would not accept him.
