Bipartisan Comittee for Border Security

Eagle Pass 1 Thousands in Migrant Caravan Head to Open Texas Border Stretch with No Walls or Fences Breitbart News Ildefonso Ortiz4 Feb 2019

Her comments come as congressional negotiators are seeking a deal that has to be approved by February 15 - and satisfy President Donald Trump's demand for border-wall funding - to avert another partial government shutdown.

"The broader city of El Paso, Texas used to have extremely high rates of violent crime - one of the highest in the country, and considered one of our nation's most unsafe cities", Trump said.

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.

It will be Trump's first in the city, but his seventh in Texas.

And in El Paso, Texas, Trump appeared to anger much of the city after he said it was one of the most risky in the country - before a border wall was built in 2008.

Chuck Schumer addressed President Trump's claims in his State of the Union address that the United States has a "moral duty" to establish an immigration system that "protects the lives and jobs of our citizens".

Top General Says He Wasn't Consulted on Syria Withdrawl
In an interview that was taped Friday, Trump told CBS News that the USA would use a base in Iraq as a means to "watch" Iran . It's perfectly situated for looking at all over different parts of the troubled Middle East rather than pulling up.

O'Rourke said during a recent taping of Oprah Winfrey's TV show that he would announce whether he would run for president in 2020 "before the end of the month". "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.

Trump's real-world examples of border barrier successes were also deeply flawed. It was an event put on at an arts center for San Diegans to let off steam by hurling footwear at Trump's television image projected on a wall as he spoke.

The president has repeatedly made inaccurate and false statements about drugs and crime along the border, including those about El Paso. Beyond the border security negotiations, the measure is likely to contain seven appropriations bills funding domestic agencies and the foreign aid budget, as well as disaster aid for victims of last year's hurricanes and western wildfires.

Beto O'Rourke will help to lead an anti-wall protest march in his hometown of El Paso, Texas, at the same time as President Donald Trump holds a rally in the town.

Group members told agents from Arizona's Ajo Station that they were dropped off near the border by vehicles on Mexico's Federal Highway 2, not far from where they were apprehended by agents, customs officials said. Few people dispute that barriers contributed to sharp declines in illegal border crossings in El Paso and other border communities.
