Trump announces campaign rally in El Paso as border wall debate rages

It was a more measured tone from Trump, who had previously been dismissive of the congressional negotiations and has threated to declare a national emergency to bypass Congress and fund his long-promised border wall.

In his State of the Union address Tuesday, Trump cited El Paso as once having "extremely high rates of violent crime".

Trump has previously said he might declare an emergency to fund border security, including a border wall between the United States and Mexico, if a special Senate-House conference fails to reach a deal by 15 February.

Following a 35-day partial shutdown that ended January 25, Trump agreed to fund the government through February 15.

"I don't know that he's ever gotten a personal perspective from them, and that is key to really understanding what people are going through", Escobar told the Post. Statistics gathered by the El Paso Times indicated that the city has actually seen a rise in violent crimes since 2006.

House-Senate bargainers say their talks have become increasingly substantive and some lawmakers - including Pelosi herself - expressed hopes that negotiators might produce an accord as soon as Friday.

NZ vs Ind 2nd T20: Hosts win toss and opt to bat
Opener Tim Seifert took the Indian bowlers to cleaners with a 43-ball 84 and visitors must have a plan to contain him on Friday. Captain Kane Williamson , experienced Ross Taylor and Colin de Grandhomme could turn out as other run-getters for the hosts.

Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan has authorized "the repositioning of approximately 250 active duty military personnel from current border security support missions in Arizona to the vicinity of the Eagle Pass" in response to the approaching caravan, Pentagon spokesman Capt. Bill Speaks said in a statement. "Simply put, walls work and walls save lives". 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.

"If it were me, I would have gone a little harder", said Pima County Republican Party Vice Chairman Chris King, at the Tucson "watch party".

While the number of Republican senators supporting the possible emergency declaration remains uncertain, according to the Hill, they might not decide to pick a fight with Trump and risk angering his loyal conservative base ahead of the 2020 elections. When asked about the intentions of the migrants to request asylum, Paniagua said their first priority is to get them settled in "humane conditions". The city's Republican mayor, Dee Margo, said he's looking forward to the president's visit, but tweeted that El Paso was "NEVER one of the most risky cities" in the nation.

According to an analysis of Federal Bureau of Investigation crimes data and city law enforcement data analyzed by the El Paso Times, violent crime in El Paso peaked in 1993.

"The dialogue is good".

Trump is insisting on $5.7 billion to build a wall - a demand that led to the recent 35-day partial federal government shutdown that ended last month. "El Pasoans should be offended by the way the president used our community to advance his racist and xenophobic agenda". "We're talking about substance", Shelby said. By 2010 after the wall was built, El Paso's murder rate had dropped to 0.9 for every 100,000 residents, compared with a national average of 4.8.
