Trumps wall tale of El Paso

so There he was, in a city that doesn't really want it. That Donald Trump moved in the Texas border city of El Paso in the presidential election of 2016, only 26 percent of the vote, did not stop the President, of course, of a visit: On Monday evening, he spoke in El Paso, whose population is four-fifths of Latinos, in front of followers – in order to demand, once again, the construction of a wall.

not far from trump's appearance, opponents of the President were given an opportunity to give him and his wall of a cancellation: in the race for a Texas Senate seat in November narrowly defeated Democrat Beto O'rourke, a potential presidential candidate, was invited, together with over 50 organizations to a against the event. You'll keep "lies and hate the truth, and a Vision for the future of the U.S.-Mexico border," said O'rourke.

a hoax it all started

the debate on the border was held as a security and illegal border crossings of migrants from Mexico and Central America, of all places, in El Paso, owes the city the wrong information, which had served the Republican attorney General of Texas, Ken Paxton, the President, during his visit to the border town of McAllen in January. El Paso had been due to criminal migrants, a dangerous place until you have built border fortifications, had Paxton explains.

Trump took up the tale and there was more in his state of the Union speech last Tuesday: "El Paso had an extremely high Rate of violent crime, one of the highest in the country, and was one of the most dangerous cities. After the construction of a mighty barrier but El Paso is now one of the safest cities," said the President in front of millions of TV viewers.

The false assertion animated the Republican mayor of the city immediately to a position: El Paso was "never one of the most dangerous cities in the United States," said mayor Dee Margo. In addition, the number of crimes in El Paso had increased after the construction of the border fortifications over two years, even before they returned to normal again.

Symbol for white identity politics

Trumps to the hair-drawn nonsense, the political calculus of the President illustrates the same well: The demonization of migrants will pay off in the presidential election of 2020, believe the President and his advisors. But the fact is that migrants commit, whether legal or undocumented, in the United States far less crimes than Locals.

Since 2006, the number of illegal border crossings has dropped also dramatically. Most of the migrants come from Central American countries, whose social and political problems the United States bear a significant responsibility.

But the wall to Mexico has long since become a Symbol for white identity politics, which is to guarantee the Republican party, particularly in Hispanic immigration States such as Texas, Georgia, North Carolina and Arizona also continue to Power.

Latinos from voter lists

deleted form Already in the coming decade, Latinos in Texas will be a majority. If the Republican party does not manage to increase their appeal to Hispanic voters, they will lose their decades of unchallenged political position in the state.

by Contrast, neither a wall on the border to Mexico, the latest attempt by attorney General Paxton, tens of thousands of Latinos from Texas voters will help to delete lists with the explanation that you are not a U.S. citizen. Hardly the list was passed to local authorities, it turned out that most of the Latinos were naturalized.

migrants were often criminally, Mexico will have to pay for the wall, illegal immigrants committed mass electoral fraud: this is the kind of political phantoms, the Donald Trump conjures up fond of can be brought about. In El Paso, but you wanted to know last night about it. (Editorial Tamedia)
