  • Border Security Funding Talks Stalled, Government Shutdown Looms

Dozens of supporters of President Donald Trump's border security efforts formed a human wall Saturday across a small part of the southern border where there is no fencing.

"We were, I think, the No. 2 or No. 3 safest city before the fence went up and we progressed into No. 1", he told Fox News.

Ahead of President Donald Trump's rally in El Paso Monday evening, El Paso County passed a resolution stating it is "disillusioned" by the president's "lies regarding the border and our community" and that he is unwelcome in that regard.

He also raised eyebrows in December when he blamed a border wall as the reason for why an increasing number of migrants have died as they illegally attempt to cross into the country. Many El Pasoans were angered by the comments and voiced their concern that people outside of the city were getting the wrong perception of our city. But many in El Paso, site of Trump's rally Monday night, say the city was safe for decades and embodies a cross-border spirit that transcends walls rather than prove they work.

President Trump is holding a rally Monday night to make his case for building a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, traveling to El Paso, Texas, as congressional negotiators continue to haggle over border security funding to avert another shutdown by a Friday deadline. He cast himself as deeply opposed to the president's rhetoric on immigration.

The El Paso rally is Trump's first since the November midterm elections and comes at a precarious moment for his presidency.

"We have a line that's very long already", Trump said of his El Paso rally.
