EL PASO - Texas governor Rick Perry's office confirms that Perry misspoke when he called Juarez the most dangerous city in America yesterday.
His office says Governor Perry corrected himself immediately, and that the bigger issue is, "There is a a real situation along the Texas-Mexico border. The federal government needs to pay attention and immediately deploy resources to adequately secure it."
Still, some El Pasoans are concerned that this is contributing to an already deteriorating image of the borderland. Hear what they have to say tonight at 5, 6, and 10 on NewsChannel 9.
