Beto O'Rourke to join march against wall countering Trump visit

Eagle Pass 1

"El Paso has been safe since the 1990s, has always been among the safest cities in America - a wall did not make any difference".

"You never know what's coming in", Maverick County Sheriff Tom Schmerber said Tuesday. Pelosi and Democratic minority leader Chuck Schumer refused to give in to his demand and offered only $1.6 billion in border security funding, with the stipulation that no funding could be used for new construction on a wall.

Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-Texas) on Thursday sent Trump a letter demanding an apology for politically motivated "distortions." . "I have ordered another 3,750 troops to our southern border to prepare for this tremendous onslaught", he said, later adding that "year after year, countless Americans are murdered by criminal illegal aliens". Also what they definitely thought was right or wrong with what only they guessed Trump might (or might not) say. "It seeks emotionally to connect with us, with voters - to stoke anxiety and paranoia, to win power over "the other" on the basis of lies that vilify people".

According to officials, the migrants were detained by the local government in Coahuila state, which arranged for 49 buses from nearby cities Arteaga and Saltillo to safely transport them back into the country's interior.

Trump had previously said he doesn't expect the talks to produce much, and he's threatened to declare a national emergency to bypass Congress and build a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border.

This will be the president's first rally in the city since he began his White House bid in 2015.

Baseball Hall Of Famer And Pioneer Frank Robinson Dies At 83
He became the first manager of the Washington Nationals after the franchise moved from Montreal for the 2005 season. Frank was a hard nosed baseball player who did things on the field that people said could never be done.

Face to face with emboldened Democrats, President Donald Trump called on Washington to cast aside "revenge, resistance and retribution" and end "ridiculous partisan investigations" in a State of the Union address delivered at a vulnerable moment for his presidency.

The Republican president cited El Paso on Tuesday in his State of the Union address as an example of a city he says became safer after a barrier was installed. Statistics gathered by the El Paso Times indicated that the city has actually seen a rise in violent crimes since 2006. El Paso's crime rate has continued to drop in the years since, from 457 crimes for every 100,000 residents in 2009 to 393 in 2014, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation statistics.

Trump plans to visit El Paso for a rally next week, a visit during which Margo hopes he gets a chance to show Trump the truth about his city.

The violent crime rate in El Paso peaked in 1993 (similar to many other USA cities), according to local and federal statistics analyzed by the El Paso Times.

Trump is expected to draw parallels between the success cities like El Paso and San Diego have seen with a border wall and compare them to cities that now have no border fencing.
