Immigration-related lockdowns fed lack of ‘vigilance’ in Uvalde, Texas report says

Frequent lockdowns from illegal-immigrant chases may have led residents of Uvalde, Texas to downplay alerts and created a “diminished sense of vigilance,” according to a scathing report from the Texas House of Representatives. Between February and May of this year, Uvalde had just under 50 lockdowns, most of which were not because of an active shooter, but because of high-speed chases between Border Patrol and illegal immigrants. In the months since the May shooting at Robb Elementary, where 19 children and two teachers were killed, Uvalde citizens have spoken about the failings of the lockdown policy. Jazmin Cazares, whose 9-year-old sister was killed in the shooting, told Texas lawmakers last month that nobody took the lockdowns seriously, until that day. “That’s what it probably was, just complacency, because it does happen on a frequent basis,” Uvalde County Justice of the Peace Eulalio Diaz Jr. said.
