Caravan migrants stalled at Texas border eye other routes

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

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.

US lawmakers negotiating a deal with President Donald Trump on border security funding on Thursday said progress was being made, with Democratic Senator Jon Tester raising the possibility of a successful conclusion to talks as soon as Friday.

After negotiators on Wednesday left a private briefing from federal border patrol and customs officials, No. 2 Senate Democratic leader, Richard Durbin, said lawmakers were told the top priority was technology.

President Donald Trump will hold one of his legendary Make America Great Again rallies in El Paso, Texas Monday evening.

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

Asylum seekers have traditionally been granted the right to stay in the United States while their cases were decided by a USA immigration judge, but a backlog of more than 800,000 cases means the process can take years.

Margo was quick to send out a tweet claiming Trump's narrative on El Paso was false, as did Texas congresswoman Veronica Escobar, who went so far as to call Trump a liar.

"The border city of El Paso, Texas, used to have extremely high rates of violent crime - one of the highest in the country, and [was] considered one of our nation's most risky cities".

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.

Other elected officials complained Trump's lies are destructive to the city's reputation and economy.

"I think he knows what he is doing".

"As the president continues his fight to secure our border, there's no better place to demonstrate that walls work than in El Paso", he said.

In fact, El Paso has never been considered one of the nation's most unsafe cities and its trends in violent crime mirror national swings.

"He will be joining our protest outside of Trump's rally at the El Paso County Coliseum", the page's organizer, Laura Valdez, wrote.

In a fact check, the El Paso Times found that the crime rate had fallen long before the construction of fencing authorized under President George W. Bush and completed in mid-2009.

Trump also railed against illicit drugs moving through the border - but the majority of illegal narcotics don't move through the areas where Trump's wall would be built.
