    EL PASO, Texas - ABC-7 has learned the families of the young engaged couple killed when their semi-truck collided with a piece of construction machinery sticking out on Interstate 10 have settled their lawsuit against the company that was overseeing the construction site. The parents of Patrick Van Fossen and Keserie Paredes had filed a wrongful death lawsuit against JAR Construction, accusing JAR of causing the deaths of Van Fossen and Paredes on the early morning of Dec. 21, 2017. In July, ABC-7 reported that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, found numerous safety hazards at JAR's construction...

    VIDEO Beto O'Rourke is not only enamored with the idea of gun confiscation but he also likes the idea of taking people's homes, especially if it helps his wealthy father-in-law who has been bankrolling his life and career. In this video, we see the reaction of low income El Paso residents to the redevelopment plan pushed by Bill Sanders via his son-in-law Beto to confiscate homes in El Paso in order to steamroller his real estate deal.

    It seems Beto O’Rourke can threaten ‘I’m coming For Your AR-15,’ But if you respond ‘My AR is ready for you’ that’s a ‘Death Threat’ WOW! Beto O’Rourke who has been spewing his rhetoric about screwing the 2nd Amendment, because if he’s elected President he’ll send the Government to your house and take your AR-15, if you don’t comply with his mandatory buy back. Since Briscoe Cain posted the message, Twitter of course, removed it for violating their “Your Not A Democrat” policies.

    Briscoe Cain, a member of the Texas House of Representatives, had posted a Twitter message during Thursday’s Democratic debate in Houston, after O’Rourke said he planned to take away high-powered weapons from civilians if elected president. “Hell yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15,” O’Rourke, a former congressman from El Paso, Texas, said during the debate. “My AR is ready for you Robert Francis,” Cain responded, using O’Rourke’s birth name. O’Rourke made it clear he didn’t interpret Cain’s tweet to be a joke. “This is a death threat, Representative,” O’Rourke wrote. “Clearly, you shouldn’t own an AR-15—and neither should anyone else.”...

    One of the people President Trump honored for his heroism during a mass shooting in an El Paso Walmart last month was arrested by the Secret Service during his visit to the White House on Monday due to an outstanding criminal warrant, law enforcement officials told the Washington Examiner. Police say his tale of heroics does not match video evidence. Chris Grant, 50, was shot in the ribs and a kidney during the Aug. 3 rampage that claimed 22 lives. He was not present for a White House ceremony Monday, but his mother Minnie Grant, 82, accepted a signed certificate...

    SAN DIEGO -- A man was charged in federal court Tuesday in connection with the deaths of three Chinese migrants, including a mother and her 15-year-old son, who were found dead in the trunk of a car. Prosecutors said Neil Edwin Valera, a U.S. citizen who resides in Tijuana, smuggled the three migrants in his BMW and left them in the trunk of the car two days after he crossed into the United States through the San Ysidro Port of Entry in the same car. Valera, a truck driver from El Paso, Texas, was taken into custody at the downtown...

    Republican Sen. Ron Johnson (Wis.) on Tuesday questioned a renewed push for gun control after two mass shootings earlier this month put a focus back on the nation's gun laws. "All I can tell you is what I hear in Wisconsin. The debate really hasn't changed much at all," Johnson told CNN. "People still ask the same questions. OK, if you propose some kind of gun legislation, first of all, how would that have prevented these tragedies in the past? How would they prevent them in the future?" he added. Pressure on lawmakers to pass gun legislation has increased following...

    SF Gate ^ | Aug 2019 | Joel Achenbach
    The alleged Christchurch shooter, who is charged with targeting Muslims and killing 51 people in March, declared himself an "eco-fascist" and railed about immigrants' birthrates. The statement linked to the El Paso shooter, who is charged with killing 22 people in a shopping area earlier this month, bemoans water pollution, plastic waste and an American consumer culture that is "creating a massive burden for future generations." The two mass shootings appear to be extreme examples of ecofascism - what Hampshire College professor emeriti Betsy Hartmann calls "the greening of hate." ...These ideas have shown themselves to be particularly dangerous when...

    The El Paso shootings were horrific. Patrick Wood Crusius, a crazed man with white supremacist views, gunned down over 20 people at a local Walmart on August 3 and wounded scores more. He was targeting Mexicans. His manifesto is littered with racial overtones, yes, but he noted that his views predated Trump’s 2016 win, that Republicans are terrible, and that a lot of people have to die to in order to maintain the sustainability of the planet. There is an eco-terror angle that makes up the core of his manifesto that the media is ignoring. Eco-terrorism isn’t an activity of...

    The mayor of El Paso claims that President Trump referred to him as a “RINO” — aka “Republican in Name Only” — during his visit to the grieving Texas city last week after the Walmart shooting. The condemnation allegedly came during a private meeting and stemmed from a disagreement the two had back in February over Trump’s proposed border wall. “He said, ‘You’re a RINO,’ and I said, ‘No, sir. I am not a RINO,’ ” recalled Mayor Dee Margo in an interview for PBS’ “Frontline.” “I said … ‘I simply corrected the misinformation you were given by [the Texas]...

A: I don’t blame you for seeing similarities there. Anyone who feels the same way about the presidency and everything that brings up, they’re going to look at that picture and think of Serena immediately. I totally get it.

    With leftists seeking to blame the El Paso shooting on President Trump, guns, white people, and whatever other boogieman will help score political points, a simple fact should be understood: Murder is a Democrat thing. We can start with the striking statistic that 68 percent of all homicides occur in just certain parts of 5 percent of America's counties – and all, or virtually all, of these are Democrat areas. Also striking is Democrats' devolution on prenatal infanticide. The line always was, though the savvy never believed it, "We want abortion to be safe, legal and rare." Leftists also insisted...

    Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) on Tuesday said the Trump administration should declare racist beliefs a threat to U.S. national security. During a hearing of the House Homeland Security Committee, Jackson Lee said that the attack in her home state of Texas last week displayed the danger of ignoring U.S. residents who foster white supremacist views. "I believe that racism ... should be declared a national security threat," Jackson Lee said. "Racism is a national security threat. Before, we would say, 'you have a right to your racist views. You have a right to believe that slavery was right. That...

    New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet on Monday admitted during a newsroom meeting that an original headline focused on President Trump's response to mass shootings last week was a "f---ing mess," according to The Daily Beast. Baquet made the comment during a meeting with newsroom staff that addressed an array of issues, including how the newspaper has covered Trump and race. But the meeting mainly focused on a print headline — "Trump Urges Unity Against Racism" — describing Trump's response to a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, that left 22 people dead earlier this month, The Daily Beast...

    You were elected to uphold the United States Constitution and represent the American people in the Senate. If you vote for this Red Flag Confiscation bill, you will be attacking our constitutional rights to bear arms, attacking our constitutional right to due process, and turning your back on the American voters who trusted you to represent us in the Senate. This bill would create a federal “bribe pot” to encourage states to pass Red Flag Gun Confiscation bills. This means SWAT teams would be empowered to show up at innocent Americans’ doorsteps, demanding they fork over their guns, all because...

    The uncle of an infant who lost both parents in the Saturday mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, that killed more than 20 people defended a photo the president took with the child while giving a thumbs up, The Washington Post reported. Trump traveled to El Paso on Wednesday to meet with first responders, hospital workers and victims of the shootings. Tito Anchondo, whose brother and sister-in-law were killed in the attack, chose to take his orphaned nephew to meet the president and first lady. The 2-month-old boy suffered two broken fingers, but he survived the shooting after his parents...

I’m a gun owner and a gun rights advocate. I believed it was true. I’m no longer an NRA member,” Cupp said. “Being right no longer feels righteous because in the wake of more mass...

I've watched violent TV shows and movies for my whole life. I don't watch unless it features cops versus bad guys, the military or the mafia. And I've owned guns for self-defense my entire adult life. I have a concealed weapon permit. I'm packing right now. I love to go shooting ... with my kids. I took my daughter shooting to celebrate her graduation from Harvard. We shot...
