Thousands of US and Mexico residents banded together during a vigil for the victims of the mass killing that took place earlier this month at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.

"Hate will never overcome our love".

Police said on Twitter that the man's actions were "critical and life-saving" and that he's believed to have saved many lives during the shooting, including an infant.

Antonio Basbo cries while kneeling in front of the cross for his partner Margie Reckard at the make shift memorial for the mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, Aug. 6, 2019.

The vigil was held at a baseball stadium in downtown El Paso that seats 8,000 people. "We are successful because of our people".

The tragedy in El Paso was committed on the basis of "racist" anti-Mexican rhetoric in a country that "has always been a land of opportunity for every newcomer", said Jesus Seade, the Mexican foreign ministry's undersecretary for North America.

Patrick Crusius, 21, confessed, according to police, to driving to El Paso from the Dallas area to target Mexicans in the attack on August 3 that took the lives of almost two dozen people and injured many more. Fernandez heard the shots but did not see the shooter. In addition to her job at Walmart, she would often help Basco handle business for his mobile vehicle wash service. "Seeing the people scattered dead on the ground".

Google Assistant now helps family members boss each other around
Not only can you set reminders for a specific time like in the above example, but also for a specific location or address. You can also see which reminders you've assigned by saying something like, "Hey Google, what are my reminders for Greg?"

The Walmart store that Crusius, 21, allegedly shot up remains a "secure location with controlled access", Walmart spokeswoman LeMia Jenkins said.

A makeshift memorial the length of the store continued to grow Tuesday.

Police are hoping the public can identify him so he can be interviewed by investigators.

A section of the stadium during the Wednesday night service was reserved for employees from the Walmart store - many of them still shaken by the unexpected attack. He is charged with capital murder.

The station reported that Reckard, who was originally from Baltimore, had a daughter and two sons. It served as a port of entry where immigrants from the interior of Mexico had to come to gain entry into the United States before World War II and is sometimes called the "Ellis Island" of the border.

On Wednesday, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said he wants the United States to extradite Crusius so that he can also be tried in Mexico.

"We were gonna live together and die together that was our plan", he said. "We never imagined something like this would happen here in El Paso".
