Texas Governor Rick Perry has mis-characterized the bombings in Juarez, referring to them twice now as "bombs going off in El Paso".
Here is what Perry said while speaking in Laredo about border violence.
"When the Governor candidate of Tamaulipas is assassinated across the border, when a car bomb goes off in El Paso and when we have intersections blocked in Nuevo Laredo and gun battles raging, there's a problem."
Perry was likely referring to the car bomb that went off in Juarez two weeks ago. He also referred to those bombs going off on the streets of El Paso during an interview with Fox News.
