    This town is proof that Trumps wall can work


    Before 2010, federal data show the border city was mired in violent crime and drug smuggling, thanks in large part to illicit activities spilling over from the Mexican side. Once the fence went up, however, things changed almost overnight. El Paso since then has consistently topped rankings for cities of 500,000 residents or more with low crime rates, based on FBI-collected statistics. The turnaround even caught the attention of former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and other Obama administration officials, who touted it as one of the nations safest cities while citing the beefed-up border security there.

    Federal data illustrates just how remarkable the turnaround in crime has been since the fence was built. According to FBI tables, property crimes in El Paso have plunged more than 37 percent to 12,357 from their pre-fence peak of 19,702 a year, while violent crimes have dropped more than 6 percent to 2,682 from a peak of 2,861 a year.The overall crime rate in El Paso continued to fall last year, prompting city leaders to trumpet the good news in a press release that noted, Because El Paso is a border town, its low crime rate may surprise you.

    You're a great Trump supporter. Trump lies and claims that crime dropped dramatically after a wall was erected in El Paso and you're right there to support him with alternative facts.

    The problem is your alternative facts only work on other Trump supporters. The rest of us know that a lie is a lie. Crime did not dramatically drop after a wall was erected in El Paso. It's not true and no amount of alternative facts will make it true.
