President Trump arrives in El Paso, Texas, today. A gunman killed 22 people in a mass shooting at a Walmart in the border city Saturday morning.

The shooter allegedly released a so-called manifesto, where he wrote of a "Hispanic invasion of Texas." Some blame President Trump and others for their anti-immigrant rhetoric.

Mallory Faulk, an El Paso-based reporter for public radio station KERA, joined The Show to talk about the president's visit, the mood in El Paso and what Texas might do to prevent future mass shootings.
