REPORT: Texas AG Ignored Threats To Murder Migrants

Newsweek reports:

A report out by the San Antonio Express-News found that a gun owner in Texas had sent more than 100 pages of racist and violent letters to the Texas Attorney General’s office threatening to kill undocumented immigrants over the course of a year and a half, and that nothing was done to stop him or to communicate the threat to local authorities. “We will open fire on these thugs,” the white man who allegedly sent the messages wrote in an email to the office. “It will be a bloodbath.”

Over the same period, local officers in San Antonio responded to 911 calls made by and about the man, and visited his house, on at least 35 occasions. However, because he had never seemingly committed a crime, police did not arrest him or take legal action. Nearby neighbors told the Express-News that the man’s home is covered in security cameras and that he often emerged holding a shotgun.

The original report is behind their paywall.

Paxton has appeared many times on JMG for his relentless crusade against LGBT rights and for his 2015 arrest on multiple felony securities fraud charges.

Paxton is currently suing San Antonio for declining a Chick-Fil-A outlet at the airport.
