Any news of the ethnic breakdown of victims in El Paso? We know that Dayton was 6/9 AA folks

Seems odd we haven't (or at least I haven't) seen any reports of who was killed in El Paso ... not really ANYTHING about who they were.

Dayton was obviously later and yet by Sunday PM we knew the 6/9 number, so ...

Have I just missed it or has El Paso police still not released any such info? Maybe having trouble contacting next of kin for everyone, possibly?

2. I think CNN reported 7 Mexican nationals.

That might have changed by now.

3. So we know 7/21 were from Mexico, either undocumented, or people w/green cards or work permits

And that's all we know?

Seems kinda odd to me that this is all they're telling us, 2 days later. Maybe like I say there's issues finding next of kin for everyone, but ...

I am curious how many of the other 14 were Latino, but US citizens, or citizens of Central/South American countries apart from Mexico.

Not that it's not very obvious at this point who his targets were, to be clear.

4. I'm sorry you haven't seen the same coverage that I have.

CNN has been showing pictures of many of the victims, with stories about them. They’ve listed names and ages of many of them.

Their nationalities or races are unimportant to me. They were human beings.

6. Yeah I don't have cable, I get my news here on DU :)

That's why I asked if the info has come out, I've not seen it mentioned here.

Thanks

7. Huh? Thousands come over the border daily to shop.

They are not undocumented or people with green cards. They go back and forth and jftr Americans go back and forth to shop to dine...whatever.

Don't you think Mexican nationals want to take advantage of the "no tax on school supplies" shopping days just like American nationals?

8. Good point, I forgot about Tourists, my bad.

I was just curious about what the news was on breakdown of ethnicity of victims because at the time I asked, I didn't know anything about it because I don't watch TV news unless it's a clip on DU and I'd not seen it mentioned.

9. From what I read, the Mexican Nationals were in El Paso legally to shop or

visiting relatives living there. El Paso is a border town; most of those having Mexican heritage are here legally. One of the reasons the Mexican government can take such a strong legal position against the US government over the victims.
The victims were not part in the undocumented underground that Drumpf and his cohorts have been profiting - politically or otherwise, from.
