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.

Almost 2,000 people want to seek asylum and enter the United States through Eagle Pass, but U.S. Customs and Border Patrol says it can only process 16 to 20 people per day.

Earlier Monday, O'Rourke will join his successor in Congress, Rep. Veronica Escobar, for a conference call to "denounce Trump's campaign rally in El Paso and his fixation on a racist and useless border wall", organizers said.

The event will likely focus on the illegal immigration, drug flow and human trafficking crisis at the U.S. - Mexico border. "The President is living in an alternative universe based on a false narrative and offensive comments about our way of life".

The counter protestors believe Trump's assessment of El Paso is wrong. He asserted that with its wall, "El Paso is one of the safest cities in our country". He might just be taking his fight for a border wall to the people.

The state government organized 49 buses from the interior cities of Saltillo and Arteaga to ensure the migrants' safety, said Jose Borrego, a spokesman for the Coahuila state government.

"If it were me, I would have gone a little harder", said Pima County Republican Party Vice Chairman Chris King, at the Tucson "watch party".

Border Patrol agents are working with other law enforcement agencies and the military to put additional security barriers in place at the two ports of entry in the Texas border town of Eagle Pass, according to a release from CBP. "It's the people", he said. A stalemate over the issue led to a record 35-day shutdown that ended January 25.

Both Democratic and GOP negotiators said a deal could come as early as this weekend to make a February 15 government shutdown deadline.

"The fact that he's coming out, I'm very pleased", Margo said, "and I hope to have some time to visit with him and show him how our border functions".

"The wall is only a portion of the president's plan", Napier said.

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.

The agency interviewed nearly 1,000 of the migrants on the border bridge between Guatemala and Mexico.

"The biggest lie is that building the wall will dismantle the cartels", he said. It remained unclear following Trump's meeting with Shelby whether the president would agree to such an outcome.
