EL PASO- The White House has announced the President's itinerary for next week's trip to the Sun City.

The President will arrive at Biggs Airfield on Fort Bliss at approximately 12:45 in the afternoon.  From there, it's on to Chamizal National Memorial.

The President will deliver his remarks about immigration in a 1:30 p.m. speech, presumably at the park's small stage. 

It's not known yet whether the event will be open to the public. 

The President is set to take off from Biggs Airfield aboard Air Force One just before 3 p.m. 

It's worth noting that the President rarely arrives and takes off on time.  During his last visit in August, he was over a half-an-hour later arriving on post.

"It's not known yet whether the event will be open to the public. " not to citizens of the USA....only to the illegal squatters from Mexico...but that is who he wants to get to vote for him.

Just stay away mr president. We can't afford any more of your bright ideas, and resent having to pay for your PR campaign. Just stay in WDC and do some honest work for a change.

"It's worth noting that the President rarely arrives and takes off on time."

based on what facts? I would really love to see factual information appropriately cited.
