There's no word yet on the exact locations the President will go to see the immigration issues but there are some areas that should be on the top of his list. Downtown El Paso had streets that were filled with people and many shelters were filled beyond capacity. Hopefully while the President is in El Paso, he will also hear the stories about the compassionate El Pasoans who donated their time, money, and supplies to help clothe and feed those in need during the frigid temperatures the past few weeks. This is a time where the nation can once again see what El Paso Strong means.
