Migrant caravan detained at the Texas border

In the big speech, Mr. Trump pointed to El Paso as proof that walls work, saying a border fence tamed a city that used to be one of the country's most unsafe places.

"It has never been considered one of our nation's most unsafe cities and El Paso was a safe city long before any wall was built", he said.

This temporary opening puts the Senate and House of Representatives on the clock to create new legislation that can be agreed upon in both chambers of Congress regarding a border wall before President Trump's February 15th deadline.

"Large bus loads of individuals are being bussed up to the border and we don't have any infrastructure in that area", the official said on the call with reporters.

Beto O'Rourke will help lead a rally opposing President Donald Trump's border wall in his hometown of El Paso, Texas, at the same time as Trump holds a rally there. "President Trump continues to give a false narrative about a great city that truly represents what this great nation is all about", the sheriff said.

"I ask the administration to be as non-interventionist as I am", she said in regard to negotiations.

Trump plans to rally supporters on Monday at the county coliseum in El Paso. Trump is looking to point to the Texas city as an example that walls do, indeed, work.

The new climate "gold standard" for Democratic presidential hopefuls
The New York Representative tied her open borders claim to her denunciation of funding for the Department of Homeland Security. President Donald Trump has scrapped Obama's plan, which imposed emissions limits on coal-fired power plants, as a job-killer.

The ongoing debate of building a border wall between the United States and Mexico looms in the background of these events.

Last year, a similar committee was formed to come to an agreement on a spending bill for Homeland Security, with one aspect of the bill designating $1.6 billion to border security as well as renovations and maintenance around the pre-existing border.

For the past 20 years, a number of published ratings have listed El Paso as one of the nation's safest cities, and Federal Bureau of Investigation statistics show that, like most major USA cities, El Paso's crime rate has been dropping since the mid-1990s.

As he condemned political turmoil in Venezuela, Trump declared that "America will never be a socialist country" - a remark that may also have been targeted at high-profile Democrats who identify as socialists. Fact is that El Paso has been one of the safest cities in the nation long before the wall was built in 2008.

Though a bipartisan group in Congress has been trying to forge a compromise, Trump has said many times that he thinks the effort is in vain and feels he has the complete authority to declare a national emergency to fulfill his campaign promise.

Until recently, most people caught crossing the border illegally were men from Mexico, but now Central American families and unaccompanied minors make up some 60 percent of those apprehended, data from the agency show.
