In the weeks since a deadly mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, Latino lawmakers have come forward publicly to denounce Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) for his language that they say is “dangerous” for the state’s immigrant communities.

Democratic members of the El Paso legislative delegation and the Mexican American Legislative Caucus condemned Abbott’s tweet that said the state had to “provide and fund public education for illegal immigrants.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The “attack on a child’s right to an education is immoral and infuriating, regardless of citizenship status,” the caucus said, accusing Abbot of having “demonized” the immigrant community “since day one,” NBC News reported.

Abbott was responding to a tweet from a public school teacher, who wrote, “I teach illegals all day long in public schools , where are the American citizens I should be teaching. Why are my tax dollars paying for illegals to be educated?”

Governor Abbot responded: “Google Plyler v. Doe. 5 liberals on the Supreme Court ruled that Texas had to provide and fund public education for illegal immigrants. The next decade, in Texas v. U. S., Federal courts rejected our lawsuit that the federal government should pay for that education cost.”

Texas State Rep. Joe Moody (D-El Paso) fired back at Abbott, “Our community is trying to heal from racially driven violence. This hurts. It is dangerous.”

U.S. Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-Texas) also slammed Abbott over a political mailer he had sent out following the El Paso Walmart shooting. She tweeted: ”If Greg Abbott ever wonders why there is so much hate and anger toward Mexicans and immigrants, he should take a long look at his rhetoric, policies and now his mailer.”

    I stand by Abbot. Illegal is illegal and immigrants that refuse to follow our laws by entering illegally don’t deserve American taxpayer funded anything and that includes their children. Quit forcing this criminal behavior on the American taxpayer.

    Why are the Democrats interested more in illegal aliens than children of the USA? American citizens should not have to foot the bill of educating illegals.
