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.

The president's campaign announced today that Donald Trump will be coming to El Paso next week, on February 11th.

Asylum seekers have traditionally been granted the right to stay in the United States while their cases were decided by a US immigration judge, but a backlog of more than 800,000 cases means the process can take years.

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, during his 90-minute speech, claimed that El Paso went from being one of the most unsafe cities in the United States to being one of the safest.

According to the "messaging preview", President Donald Trump will cast an "inspiring vision of American greatness" and outline a policy agenda that "both parties can rally behind to achieve this vision". "@POTUS is once again lying and using the #SOTU address to spread falsehoods about our beloved city of El Paso". House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was praised by Democrats for her hard-line negotiating during the shutdown, sat behind Trump as he spoke.

In the big speech, Mr. Trump pointed to El Paso as proof that walls work, saying a border fence tamed a city that used to be one of the country's most risky places. The Security Secretary for Coahuila, Jose Luis Pliego Corona reportedly wants the U.S. to know that Mexican officials are doing everything possible to identify and remove any criminal threat in the group.

"El Paso was NEVER one of the MOST unsafe cities in the US".

"We didn't want to run the risks of them traveling in open trucks", Borrego said.

"As the President continues his fight to secure the border, there's no better place to demonstrate that walls work than in El Paso", Michael Glassner, the chief operating officer of the Trump campaign, said in a statement.

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 did offer a lengthy defense of his call for a border wall, declaring: "I will build it".

CNBC's Christina Wilkie discussed Wiles' response to Trump's claims on Twitter, posting, "Sheriff of El Paso refutes the entire argument Trump is making" about "the wall and crime in that city".

Cantu said U.S. Customs and Border officials can process about 12 to 15 immigrant cases a day, so there is no telling how long it will take to process the 1,800 immigrants.
