The march is set to begin near Bowie High School, pass the convention center holding Trump's event and finish at Chalio Acosta Sports Center - a one-mile trip along the US-Mexico border.

It was a more measured tone from Trump, who had previously been dismissive of the congressional negotiations and has threated to declare a national emergency to bypass Congress and fund his long-promised border wall.

Hours after declaring that the El Paso border area was once one of the most unsafe cities in the country but was transformed nearly overnight to one of the safest because of a border wall, President Donald Trump announced he is holding a MAGA rally in El Paso this Monday, Feb. 11. He asserted that once a wall was built there, "El Paso is one of the safest cities in our country".

The new openness comes after Trump delivered a well-received State of the Union speech in which he preached the value of bipartisanship.

Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby, who met earlier on Thursday at the White House with Trump, told reporters the 17 Senate and House of Representatives negotiators were on "a positive trajectory".

Trump's campaign manager tweeted the rally will be held "less than 1000 feet from the successful border fence that keeps El Paso safe!" Especially: the crucial controversy that just shut down government once and is still hovering, unresolved, above the heads of the president, Congress, government and all Americans.

Trump mentioned El Paso Tuesday night during his State of the Union address.

The comment riled El Paso residents. "I have ordered another 3,750 troops to our southern border to prepare for this tremendous onslaught", he said, later adding that "year after year, countless Americans are murdered by criminal illegal aliens". "I feel okay here inside, because I don't know anybody on the outside, anyway".

Sheriff Richard Wiles of El Paso County had a very Trump-ian response to the president's attempt at citing his jurisdiction as proof of the efficacy of walls: "Sad".

It isn't the first time that O'Rourke, who lost a 2018 midterm Senate race to Republican incumbent Ted Cruz, has decried Trump's policies on immigration and the border wall.

"El Paso is safe due to its people, the good community relations with law enforcement, and the trust of all communities in our local institutions", Fernando Garcia, executive director of the Border Network for Human Rights, said in a statement. "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".

Democrats have refused to acquiesce to his demands for a border wall, and Republicans are increasingly unwilling to shut down the government to help him fulfill his signature campaign pledge.
