Mexico Should Not Consent to Do Washington?s Dirty Work

Immigration and trade are now closely linked, at least in Mr. Trump?s mind. There lies part of the current caravan crisis. It is not just Trumpian electioneering.

New water park

ElPasoSpeak - Sat, 10/27/2018 - 5:00am

Item 22.4 on the Tuesday, October 30, 2018 city council agenda provides incentives for a company to build a convention center and convention center hotel in west El Paso.

This is the water park that has been the subject of recent speculation.

The estimated investment by the company is $150 million.  They are telling us that about 600 jobs will be created.

In return the company will receive:

100% city property tax rebate for 15 years.  The city’s rate is .843332 per hundred dollars of valuation.  That comes to $1.26 million per year in tax relief at the current rate.

100% city sales tax rebate for 15 years

50% hotel motel tax rebate for 15 years.  The tax is 17.5% of the room rate of which the city normally gets 11.5%.  That means the operation will collect the 17.5% and then get 5.75% returned to them by the city.

TIRZ 10 will fund $526,100 in infrastructure and safety improvements.

The park will be at 6850 Paseo Del Norte, across the street from the new Walmart.

We deserve better

I?m a Child of Immigrants. And I Have a Plan to Fix Immigration.

Neither Democrats nor Republicans will like it. But it would be humane, it would adhere to the rule of law, and it would work.

Trump?s Ignoring Our Real ?National Emergies?

Instead of migrants fleeing Central America, maybe the real ?National Emergy,? to use the president?s spelling, is drugs, homelessness, gun deaths and lack of health insurance.
