President Trump to Hold MAGA Rally in El Paso, TX, Monday

Central American migrants settle in a shelter at the Jesus Martinez stadium in Mexico City in Mexico City Monday Jan. 28 2019. Thousands of Central American migrants are waiting for Mexican officials to issue them humanitarian visas which give them

Hours after declaring that the El Paso border area was once one of the most unsafe cities in the country but was transformed nearly overnight to one of the safest because of a border wall, President Donald Trump announced he is holding a MAGA rally in El Paso this Monday, Feb. 11.

But Trump met earlier Thursday with Sen.

Wiles continued, "The facts are clear: 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.' And, El Paso was a safe city long before any wall was built".

El Paso Mayor Dee Margo, a Republican, blasted Mr. Trump's characterization of the city, though he credited the border fence with reducing crime.

"I ask the administration to be as non-interventionist as I am", she said in regard to negotiations. But he added: "We need border security".

Like O'Rourke, others in El Paso are critical of Trump's statements, with some asking for an apology for the picture being painted by the president of the city. Fact is that El Paso has been one of the safest cities in the nation long before the wall was built in 2008.

According to officials, the migrants were detained by the local government in Coahuila state, which arranged for 49 buses from nearby cities Arteaga and Saltillo to safely transport them back into the country's interior. El Paso's crime rate has continued to drop in the years since, from 457 crimes for every 100,000 residents in 2009 to 393 in 2014, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation statistics.

From England to Scotland to the Big Apple, the outrageously large balloon depicting President Donald Trump as a baby has made its way across the globe and is now going to be floating to Texas for the president's first 2020 campaign rally.

"We can't stop here", said Oscar Lopez, a 33-year-old Honduran traveling with his wife and two daughters. "White 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". 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.

U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro of San Antonio said Trump "paints a very scary and unfair picture of our border cities, particularly in Texas".

Trump plans to visit El Paso for a rally next week, a visit during which Margo hopes he gets a chance to show Trump the truth about his city.

Mulling their next move from the dusty Mexican town of Piedras Negras, just south of the Eagle Pass crossing on the USA side, the latest group of around 1,700 caravan migrants want to avoid a potentially months-long wait for a chance to plead their case for asylum.

"Trump's political rally in El Paso is a slap in the face to our community", Blanco said in a statement.

Miguel Riquelme, the Governor of Coahuila, a Mexican state near the USA border, told local newspapers that he will not allow more migrants to travel through the area.
