New York Times reporter Farnaz Fassihi tweeted on Tuesday that everyone she knows now wants to raise their children outside the United States.
In what appeared to be a response to the Uvalde, Texas school shooting that killed 19 students and two teachers, Fassihi claimed that people she knows are now saying they would prefer to raise their kids outside America.
“I’m a child of immigrants. When I was a kid, everyone I knew wished they could raise their children in America. Now, everyone I know wishes they could raise their children outside of America,” the Times’ United Nations reporter tweeted.
Fassihi’s New York Times colleagues echoed similar thoughts over the past week following the shooting including Paul Krugman claiming that conservatives believe mass shootings are an ‘acceptable price’ to their politics.

“This is real,” Attiah tweeted.

The Washington Post published numerous articles criticizing the Second Amendment and Republicans in the wake of the horrific shooting. On Tuesday, a reporter published an analysis that claimed conservatives “reinterpreted” the Second Amendment to create an individual right to own guns.
“The interpretation that the Second Amendment extends to individuals’ rights to own guns only became mainstream in 2008, when the Supreme Court ruled in a landmark gun case, District of Columbia vs. Heller, that Americans have a constitutional right to own guns in their homes, knocking down the District’s handgun ban,” staff writer Amber Phillips wrote.
