FORT BLISS — President Barack Obama was scheduled to travel to El Paso Aug. 31 to speak with troops, service members and military families at Fort Bliss.
Obama's last public appearance in El Paso was back in May 10, 2011. His speech then was focused around immigration issues.
Earlier this year, in March he was also in Maljamar, New Mexico, where he spoke about energy issues surrounded by oil field workers.
