Trump rallies supporters in El Paso over border wall

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Trump traveled to the Democratic bastion of El Paso county in heavily-Republican Texas on Monday (February 11) to hammer on immigration issues that delighted his followers.

"I will never sign a bill that forces the mass release of violent criminals into our country," Trump said, referring to a Democratic proposal in the Washington talks to lower the cap on detentions of criminal aliens by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

A congressional aide said under Monday's tentative agreement, the cap would likely stay around the same in previous years.

Trump said he had heard about progress in the talks before he took the stage, but did not mention details.

"Just so you know - we're building the wall anyway," he said, to huge cheers.

For much of his speech, Trump recounted accomplishments from his first term.

He was also interrupted several times by protesters in the crowd who were escorted out by security.

"BUILD THE WALL!" the crowd chanted as they were led out.
