Texas governor announces domestic terrorism task force at El Paso memorial

“Today, I evoke my authority as governor to form a domestic terrorism task force to combat hate-filled extremism and violence in the state of Texas,” said Abbott, speaking at a memorial service for the victims.

Twenty-two people were killed in the shooting at a Walmart store in the U.S. border city on August 3.

A four-page statement believed to have been written by the suspected shooter, Patrick Crusius, and posted on 8chan, an online message board often used by extremists, called the El Paso attack “a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas”.
