Contrasting realities on immigration as Trump, O'Rourke host dueling rallies in El Paso

Contrasting realities on immigration as Trump, O'Rourke host dueling rallies in El PasoStanding within earshot distance of one another, President Trump and Beto O’Rourke held opposing rallies in El Paso, Texas, that clashed over immigration. Trump and his contingent of an estimated 6,500 chanted “Build the wall” and “U-S-A” over and over, while O’Rourke and an estimated 10,000 supporters called for a path to citizenship for those wanting to cross the border. While Trump spoke from inside a packed El Paso County Coliseum arena with a large U.S. flag and “Finish the Wall” signs perched on either side, O’Rourke spoke outside on a stage set up inside a baseball field with a mariachi band as his backdrop.

Texas showdown: O'Rourke, Trump hold dueling rallies over wall

Texas showdown: O'Rourke, Trump hold dueling rallies over wallO’Rourke, who lost in his bid for a U.S. Senate seat in Texas, promised to blast Trump for stoking “false fear” about immigrants and telling “lies” about his hometown El Paso, which Trump said was a dangerous place before it had a border fence. In a conference call with reporters, O’Rourke said his counter-rally two hundred yards from the Trump event would be a “powerful, beautiful” response to “Trump’s lies about our community, the U.S.-Mexico border, immigrants, about Mexicans.” Trump is traveling to El Paso to argue for a wall he says can protect Americans from violent criminals, drugs and a “tremendous onslaught” of migrant caravans. Trump, a Republican, spoke out against the Democratic attempt to cap detention beds before he left for Texas.

With dueling DACA cases, Supreme Court showdown seems inevitable

With dueling DACA cases, Supreme Court showdown seems inevitableThe fact that Texas and a half-dozen other Republican-controlled states sued this week to end an Obama-era immigration executive order feels very 2014. The stakes are highest for the almost 700,000 US residents brought here illegally as children who have been deemed low priorities for deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program former President Barack Obama created by executive order in 2012.
