Jiménez says she has also noticed a change in the way her family is treated in the community. “There have always been racist people. That’s nothing new. They’ve always been there.

In a recent incident, Manuel was filling up his tank at a gas station when a group of men dressed in hunting gear stopped to insult him. His wife declined to repeat the remarks, which she described as “ugly.”
