Mexican Authorities Detain 1,600 Migrants Near Texas Border

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

Trump said in his State of the Union address that El Paso's border walls helped it become one of the nation's safest cities.

The contrasting pathways - with Trump set to appear before raucous supporters and Pelosi signalling compromise - came with just over a week until a February 15 deadline for negotiators to reach agreement or potentially face a renewed partial government shutdown. But his constant use of risky border security rhetoric sharply juxtaposed those gains.

By contrast, Ciudad Juárez, El Paso's Mexican sister city just across the border, has at times been one of the deadliest cities in the world and saw an increase in crime a year ago.

President Trump will host a "Make America Great Again" rally Monday in El Paso, the Texas border town rocked by his State of the Union speech.

"I am asking you to defend our very risky southern border out of love and devotion to our fellow citizens and to our country", he said. O'Rourke and local leaders say Trump's facts are wrong and walls are irrelevant.

The additional material - storage containers, traffic barriers and razor wire - will "act as impediments to illegal crossers", Customs and Border Protection said.

Watch the second Twenty20 global between New Zealand and India from 5.55am, Friday on Sky Sports Cricket and Main Event. From 77/6, it took a 31-ball 39 from MS Dhoni to accord a sense of respectability to the Indian total.

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.

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

The ongoing debate of building a border wall between the United States and Mexico looms in the background of these events. Prior to the wall, crime rates in El Paso and Juarez were closely related to one another. "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 risky cities".

Pelosi said during week's press conference that no wall funding would be included in the deal prompting Trump's response that the negotiations are perhaps "a waste of time".

"March for Truth" is being sponsored by several nonprofit groups - including Border Network for Human Rights, and Women's March El Paso - as well as more than 60 local musicians, organizers said. He held up the border city El Paso as a stunning success of crime reduction that would follow the construction of a wall, but a closer look at crime trends and El Paso law enforcement offer a different story. Absent the border barrier, is there any doubt that some of Juarez's drug war violence would spill into El Paso?
