In January, Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton told Trump during a border security roundtable that the border wall worked in El Paso.
On the other side of the debate, Trump's campaign put out a video highlighting the need for a wall and featuring El Paso residents.
"El Paso's example shows that only with a physical barrier can we stop the flow of illegal immigration, drugs, and crime and secure our southern border", Parscale said. Margo said while Trump was right to call El Paso safe, he was wrong to attribute its drop in crime to the construction of a barrier along the border - a remark he said Trump had echoed from Texas GOP Attorney General Ken Paxton.
He concluded, "The president is lying to you to get his border wall".

After Trump's remarks about El Paso in his State of the Union address, Mayor Dee Margo, a Republican, took to Twitter to counter the president's claims, saying that "El Paso was NEVER one of the MOST unsafe cities in the U.S.". According to Federal Bureau of Investigation crime data, the city had the third lowest violent crime rate among 35 USA cities with a population over 500,000 in 2005, 2006 and 2007 - before construction of a 57-mile-long fence started in mid-2008.
A former congressman who excited grassroots Democrats last November with an against-the-odds near upset of Republican Senator Ted Cruz, O'Rourke is from El Paso.
Weeks later, two national groups sprang up to "draft" Beto into running for the White House.
Another Texan who has already declared his candidacy for president is also criticizing Trump's rally in El Paso. So far, O'Rourke has not made a decision.
Beto O'Rourke is set to counter President Donald Trump's visit to El Paso, Texas, on Monday by joining a one-mile march past Trump's rally and giving a speech across the street at about the same time the President plans to take the stage.
