Trump Campaign Announces First Rally of 2019

Trump Campaign Announces First Rally of 2019

Trump has been seeking $5.7 billion for border-wall construction. "We were able to figure who was coming through our ports of entry".

Eagle Pass has relatively little fencing compared with other sections of Texas or other border states.

As President Donald Trump prepares to hold a rally along the U.S. -Mexico border to promote his sought-after border wall, former Congressman and Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke will host an event of his own. Weeks later, an 8-year-old Guatemalan boy died after crossing the border with his father near El Paso, Texas.

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

"When they built a wall, El Paso became one of the safer cities", Joyner, 64, said at a "watch party" held by local Republicans.

In January, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton agreed with the president.

"[Trump's] fearmongering and lies have hurt our border economy and community - one of the safest cities in America, even before the wall", Blanco said in an emailed statement. Let us know you'll be there and share this video to spread the word. The border is marked mainly by the Rio Grande and lacks the long sections of high barriers found in Tijuana. But violent crime fell long before the wall was built in El Paso, with violent crime falling 34% between 1993 and 2006 in the city. "While it is true that El Paso is one of the safest cities in the nation, it has never been. considered one of our nation's most unsafe cities", he said in a statement to NBC News.

El Paso County Sheriff Richard Wiles, however, disagreed with his Trump's assessment of the area.

According to an update on the page, any leftover funds will be donated to the Annunciation House of El Paso, a place that serves the "migrant, refugee, and economically vulnerable peoples of the border region through hospitality, advocacy, and education".

Trump's guests for the speech include Anna Marie Johnson, a woman whose life sentence for drug offenses was commuted by the president, and Joshua Trump, a sixth-grade student from Wilmington, Delaware, who has been bullied over his last name.

Trump may also be doing what comes naturally to him.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Wednesday that she would be willing to support any compromise border-security legislation that emerges from a bipartisan committee and that she has urged the White House to adopt the same "hands-off" posture. The page says the balloon will be used alongside a protest outside of the rally venue.
