With the Brut Sun Bowl game just 10 days away, one El Pasoan is making a call to city leaders to urge them to stop referring to Juarez as our "sister city." James Perry says he firmly believes Oklahoma and Stanford fans will be turned off by that nickname. He says fans will not want to attend the game because they'll think El Paso has the same reputation as Juarez and the ongoing cartel violence.
Mayor John Cook says they have no plans to stop using the term.
