President Biden visits Uvalde in wake of shooting

Congressman Tony Gonzales and President Joe Biden discussing the issues, days after the second-deadliest school shooting in US history occurred in Uvalde, Texas this past Tuesday, May 24.

UVALDE, TX – Congressman Tony Gonzales (TX-23) today released the following statement after President Joe Biden’s visit to Uvalde following the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School last week:
“Today, I welcomed the President of the United States to my district to grieve with the Uvalde community,” said Congressman Gonzales. “While joining in prayer and mourning with the victims’ families, we had an open, honest conversation about the realities this community is facing and will continue to face if significant investments are not made in Texas.
Improving access to in-patient behavioral and mental healthcare, strengthening inter agency communication and response time, and expanding rural broadband for tele-health are a few of the solutions I proposed today. I look forward to leading a comprehensive strategy with my colleagues in Congress, the Executive Branch, and anyone willing to work for solutions, so we can heal this community and prevent another senseless tragedy.”
Congressman Gonzales joined President Biden for a visit to Robb Elementary School, mass at Sacred Heart Catholic Church and meetings with first responders.
