My family lives both in El Paso, TX and Juárez, Mexico, and a wall had nothing to do with security. We are sister cities, and we treat each other with dignity.— E Elt (@peanut29e17) January 16, 2018
No, we don’t need a wall - El Paso https://t.co/hWi45bCOFc— Edward0️⃣5️⃣ (@egaribay05) January 17, 2018
El Paso was safe before that abomination and El Paso remains safe after. It’s not the wall, it’s the people. Ms. Sanders, you disrespect my city with your ignorance. https://t.co/2H3AV5iu7h— Erika (@_Ewika) January 16, 2018
This such gross propaganda being pushed by the WH. 9 of Texas's 13 border counties went blue. El Paso became safe long before a wall, and it's home to thousands of dreamers and Hispanic folks. https://t.co/KCujrZDxrt— Isaac Saul (@Ike_Saul) January 17, 2018
