Trump Holds El Paso Rally Followed by 'Ingraham Angle' Interview

In a video tweeted by the progressive PAC Latino Victory Fund, O'Rourke invited his followers to join "thousands of El Pasoans" at the event "not too far from the coliseum, where we're going to present a powerful, positive message for the country about who we are on the U.S. -Mexico border".

Republicans were desperate to avoid another bruising shutdown.

Beto O'Rourke, the Democratic former Texas congressman, and his wife Amy participate in an anti-Trump march in El Paso, Texas, Feb. 11, 2019. The funding measure is through the fiscal year, which ends September 30.

In a taped interview with Oprah Winfrey in NY, O'Rourke, 46, appeared to be leaning toward a 2020 campaign for the White House but said he would make his decision after consulting his wife and three children. The fencing would be built in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas.

After a 35-day partial government shutdown, the longest in USA history, Trump signed a resolution to temporarily reopen the federal government last month.

"Our staffs are just working out the details", said House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey, D-N.Y.

More than a half-hour in his rally, Trump had scarcely mentioned immigration, offering just a passing suggestion that those chanting "Build the Wall" switch to "Finish the Wall".

This weekend, Shelby pulled the plug on the talks over Democratic demands to limit immigrant detentions by federal authorities, frustrating some of his fellow negotiators, but Democrats yielded ground on that issue in a fresh round of talks on Monday. According to Federal Bureau of Investigation crime data, the city had the third lowest violent crime rate among 35 US cities with a population over 500,000 in 2005, 2006 and 2007 - before construction of a 57-mile-long fence started in mid-2008. "We certainly hope so".

Inside, where Texas Republican leaders, led by Gov. Greg Abbott and U.S. Sens. "Trump's fixation on a border wall and his distortions of life in El Paso and along the border are unacceptable", the event Facebook page says.

He says, "Walls do not save lives, walls end lives", citing the danger to asylum seekers who are rejected by the US. The deal includes $1.375 billion in funding for a barrier along the US southern border and funding for approximately 40,000 beds for ICE detention beds. Democrats claimed the number of beds would be brought down to 40,520 as against the 49,000 beds on February 10, the most recent date when figures were available.

El Paso's Republican mayor, Dee Margo, said the city had been safe for years before the wall was built.

But if accepted, the deal would avert another chaotic standoff in which Trump has threatened to cut budgets from swaths of government this Friday.

"We can call it anything".

Trump previously called for $5.7 billion in border wall funding.

The Great Pretender's ongoing hysteria about a wall to keep out his fictional "tremendous onslaught" of brown people is happily, increasingly running into its own wall - knowledgeable people in border areas pushing back and arguing #WallsDontWork.

But Trump's crowd largely bought into the president theme - the United States needs a wall to keep out bad hombres, drugs and crime ushered across a porous border by migrants.

Trump has repeatedly made the false claim that El Paso's crime rate dropped and the city became safer since the wall was built in 2008.
