Texas governor: 15 killed in school shooting; gunman dead

Lorena and I send our prayers to the Uvalde and Robb Elementary community. The gravity of the situation is unimaginable and incomprehensible. The loss of a child to senseless violence is something that a parent should not have to go through. We need to be committed to ending the epidemic of gun violence across the country. South Texas is a strong and resilient community, but we cannot let tragedies like this persist.

UVALDE, Texas (AP) — Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says 15 people were killed in a shooting Tuesday at an elementary school.

Thank you Congressman Gonzalez for visiting the Wilson County Veterans Service Office. You and your Staff were great encouragement to the new WCVSO Oscar RaminezJarquin.
Thank you for sending a letter asking the Biden administration to rescind the recent executive order banning responsible energy leasing on federal lands and waters
Evil Trump just won’t stop his campaign of hate going to celebrate the wall
He is no Hispanic he is a traitor to the Hispanic people instead of helping the Hispanics he is putting them in Fields
Open Letter to U.S. Congress
Why You Are In Congress
Why do people from all around the world wish to come to America? Is it to go to Disneyland? Is it to go to Hollywood? Is it to view the vast beautiful natural wonders of its parks, its rivers, its rustic towns and beautiful scenery from West to East and South to North?
The reason people come to America can be found in one word - Freedom!
You are in Congress to help insure that we continue to enjoy that freedom for which so many gallant men and women have sacrificed their bodies and lives.
What guarantees that freedom? The Bill of Rights and our Constitution are the foundations of that freedom to which we so dearly cling. Without elections free from fraud, we lose our freedom. We lose America.
Many states, especially the Swing States of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin,Arizona and Nevada changed their election laws in an unconstitutional manner by not having those changes being enacted by their legislatures per the U.S. Constitution in the months and weeks leading up to the November 3rd Election this year.The changes made in those states encouraged fraudulent voting and that fraud was seen in numerous cases changing the outcome of the Presidential Election.
The Supreme Court refused to look at the evidence and try the case. It is their job to enforce the Constitution of the United States of America. They failed to do so and in that failing therein lies the beginning of the end of freedom in America.
You can correct their error on January 6th by throwing out ALL the illegal votes cast in the swing states even though that means throwing out many votes that were legal. That is the only way to correct the outcome. If this 2020 election stands, the reason you are in Congress and the reason people from all over the world wish to come to America is gone. Choose freedom!
Looks like pelosi's family is getting million$, gender studies getting million$, Sudan getting million$, Smithsonian (pelosi fam works there) million$, and numerous other Shams getting million$,. But WE THE PEOPLE are waiting for $600 measly bucks??? Congressmen kept getting their paychecks and did little to no work for it, while businesses and jobs shut down. You guys shouldn't get paid until everyone else who lost their jobs on this Shamdemic gets paid.
Is Texas rep. Vincente gonzalez
Mexican-American, and if he is why is he ashamed to admit it?
OMG! My compadre Carlos E. Elizondo will be reprising his role as Social Secretary for Dr. Jill Biden as THE WHITE HOUSE SOCIAL SECRETARY in the Biden/Harris Administration!! YAY!!

My friend since 1980 and padrino to my sons is the first Hispanic American named to the position and only the second man according to CNN.

I'm still looking for your post, the one you called half of America cockaroaches. Where did it go?
Why did you post on your campaign page and call us cockroach trolls? Very impressive way of closing that divide!! Just a reminder, you can't delete your Constituents from your official page. We are not hiding but being silenced by deletion from platforms.
Where is the designated drop off for mail in ballots in McAllen? Thanks!
Congressman, I support you and Our Democrats but I have a concern. For the economies sake we should meet in the middle with the Republicans on the stimulus package and help create jobs and keep our major and small business afloat. I am one of the lucky ones that could care less about $1200.00 for me but our Airlines are suffering, a lot of small business have closed and we need to work something out. What happened to Parties working together for the betterment of our country and our tax payers. I would appreciate the help on this matter.
