    'It Feels Like Being Hunted': Latinos Across U.S. in Fear After El Paso Massacre
    When the rhetoric from the topic portrays you as an invading force, it is only a matter of time before people start acting out against this "invasion."
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Lord have mercy! ¡Señor ten piedad! Protégenos y guárdanos del mal.

    I'm only one guy, but the only invasion I'm truly worried about at this point is the invasion of people's brains with political rhetoric that dehumanizes others for where they or their families are from, what languages they speak, how they look, etc. That never ends well for anyone

    I hate that human beings feel like they're being hunted. I understand why they do. I don't think they're being hyperbolic in the least. That's the problem.

    Most do not say that but I can understand why some feel that way, absolutely.

    Especially given a man drove 600 miles to El Paso (85% Hispanic) in "response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas."

    That's pretty lame considering some families in El Paso where here long before Texas became a state.

    El Paso history...400+ years since the first Spaniards arrived - or you can back further to A.D. 400 when the hunter/gathering people started to settle in the area.
