To hear President Donald Trump tell it, El Paso, Texas, was one of the nation's "most risky cities" before a border barrier was constructed.

In San Diego, California, locals threw flip-flops at television images of U.S. President Donald Trump as he used his Tuesday State of the Union speech to demand a wall to defend a "dangerous southern border".

Hours after slamming the city, Trump's campaign announced on Wednesday that he will have a rally in El Paso, the home of potential Democraic challenger Beto O'Rourke, on February 11.

"It would make it better if the Democrats, Republicans, the United States government, the Mexican government and the Honduran government would work together to put on the table something that will resolve this for good", he said, noting that the caravans could disturb the city's $22 billion cross-border trade with the US.

While there is no mention of the wall in the preview, Trump did however save his first tweet Tuesday morning emphasizing the need for a barrier, possibly a human one. "President Trump continues to give a false narrative about a great city that truly represents what this great nation is all about", the sheriff said. "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 risky cities", he said in a statement to NBC News. "@POTUS is once again lying and using the #SOTU address to spread falsehoods about our beloved city of El Paso". The two met last summer in Singapore, though that meeting only led to a vaguely worded commitment by the North to denuclearize. "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".

Former El Paso Police Chief Russ Leach told the El Paso Times in 1997 that credit for the drop in crime should go to city residents.

Facebook's profit reached a record $6.9 billion last quarter
This quarter, Facebook users rise in both Europe and the USA , regions where numbers were either flat or went down last quarter. The company announced that each month, a new high of 2.7 billion people used Facebook , Instagram , WhatsApp , or Messenger.

In other words, Federal Bureau of Investigation and El Paso Police Department statistics show no correlation whatsoever between El Paso's decrease in crime and additional border fencing in that area.

"He will be joining our protest outside of Trump's rally at the El Paso County Coliseum", the page's organizer, Laura Valdez, wrote.

A caravan of 1,600 Central American migrants was surrounded Wednesday by Mexican authorities in an old factory a short distance from Texas, where they hoped to seek asylum even as USA authorities sent extra law enforcement and soldiers to stop them.

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

Trump also railed against illicit drugs moving through the border - but the majority of illegal narcotics don't move through the areas where Trump's wall would be built.
