Pelosi Wants To Keep White House Out Of Border Wall Negotiations

Michael Glassner, the chief operating officer of the Trump's campaign, said in a statement on Wednesday announcing the El Paso rally that "As the President continues his fight to secure our border, there's no better place to demonstrate that walls work than in El Paso".

Trump once again highlighted border security during his State of the Union address last Tuesday, calling El Paso "one of our Nation's most unsafe cities" and erroneously crediting "a powerful barrier" for making it one of the safest.

This temporary opening puts the Senate and House of Representatives on the clock to create new legislation that can be agreed upon in both chambers of Congress regarding a border wall before President Trump's February 15th deadline.

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. Weeks later, an 8-year-old Guatemalan boy died after crossing the border with his father near El Paso, Texas.

Beto O'Rourke will help lead a rally opposing President Donald Trump's border wall in his hometown of El Paso, Texas, at the same time as Trump holds a rally there.

"They look to be making this a campaign issue", Trump said, acknowledging the public opinion has been with Democrats on the wall and the government shutdown.

Despite losing his Senate race against GOP Senator Ted Cruz, O'Rourke's ability to turn a deep red state into a battleground for Democrats and lose by just three points hoisted him to national prominence, prompting talk of a 2020 presidential run.

A large police force stood guard outside the unused factory complex where the shelter is located, about 5 miles (8 kilometers) from the border.

Wizards sending Porter to Bulls
But, star guard John Wall ruptured his left Achilles tendon earlier this week while recovering from a December heel surgery. In 41 games with 28 starts for the Wizards this season, Porter has averaged 12.6 points and 5.6 rebounds per game.

A statement from Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed the migrants' arrival but did not indicate when they made it to the border.

In the interview with Winfrey this week, O'Rourke called Trump's push for the wall a "racist response to a problem we don't have".

Key federal agencies are now operating on a short-term spending bill Trump signed January 25, when he ended the nation's longest ever government shutdown without getting the money he wants for his wall.

The Reverend Robin Hoover, the head of Migrant Status Inc, who has spent 33 years working on border issues, blasted Trump's speech.

"El Paso was NEVER one of the MOST risky cities in the US".

The rally is scheduled to be held at the El Paso County Coliseum on Monday at 7:00 p.m.

The city's rate of violent crime reached its peak in 1993, when more than 6,500 violent crimes were recorded, and that number fell by more than 34 percent over the next 13 years, according to an analysis of crime data by the El Paso Times.
