Pres. Biden Will Visit Uvalde, Texas on May 29; Will Console Families of Mass School Shootings

 President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden will travel to Uvalde, Texas on Sunday (May 29) to console families and honor victims of Tuesday's mass school shooting in which 19 children and two teachers were killed, the Newsy website reports today (May 28, 2022). 

Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the president would meet with the community and religious leaders and victims' families. 

Jean-Pierre, the parent of an elementary school student, delivered an impassioned plea at the White House for  lawmakers to come together to address gun violence. "These were elementary school kids; they should be losing their first teeth, not losing their lives," she said.
