Trump announces campaign rally next week in El Paso, Texas

No wall on White House talking points on State of the Union | McClatchy Washington Bureau

The likelihood of Congress agreeing on a border security deal that provides the president with his wall is diminishing. "We were able to figure who was coming through our ports of entry". Chuck Fleischmann, R-Tenn., a negotiator, said Democrats were showing some flexibility in the semantic dispute over the type of physical barriers they would accept while Republicans seemed potentially willing to limit where the structures might be built.

The Trump campaign's announcement of the president's El Paso rally came just hours after Trump claimed in his State of the Union address that the city was one of the most risky in the U.S. until several miles of barrier were built in the city in 2008.

"I reject the federal contention that there exists an overwhelming national security crisis at the southern border, along which are some of the safest communities in the country", Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said Tuesday in a statement. "Simply put, walls work and walls save lives".

Trump agreed in late January to temporarily re-open the government for three weeks until February 15 and allow for a period of negotiations, stipulating that a national emergency declaration is all but certain if his terms are not met.

By contrast, Ciudad Juárez, El Paso's Mexican sister city just across the border, has at times been one of the deadliest cities in the world and saw an increase in crime a year ago.

Trump appealed Tuesday night for bipartisanship but refused to yield on the hard-line immigration policies that have infuriated Democrats and forced the recent government shutdown.

"The only thing that can stop it", he said, "are foolish wars, politics or ridiculous partisan investigations" - an apparent swipe at the special counsel investigation into ties between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign, as well as the upcoming congressional investigations.

Most Virginia Democrats, however, privately want Northam to stay in office until more information comes out about Herring and Lt. Questions over whether there are any racist skeletons in Cox's closet arose this week because he is the third in line for Gov.

"If anyone tries to cross the border illegally, they'll be arrested", said Maverick County Sheriff Tom Schmerber.

"The wall is only a portion of the president's plan", Napier said. "It's the people", he said.

Additionally, the number of large groups - more than 100 people - encountered by Border Patrol skyrocketed this fiscal year, the official said.

"The biggest lie is that building the wall will dismantle the cartels", he said.

In San Diego, every time Trump mentioned the word "wall", the crowd shouted "No Wall!"

"Approximately 2,000 aliens have arrived in northern Mexico as part of a "caravan" seeking to cross the border into Texas", Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen M. Nielsen said in a statement.
