Means “the pass,” and is the armpit of America and Texas. The 5th largest city in Texas with some 650,000 people or so along the border with Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. The city is unarguably among the poorest, most uneducated and dirtiest cities in the country and Texas, making it one of the worst places to live. There are very few good jobs and many people hardly have an education. This is why El Paso has more 99-cent stores than you could shake a stick at. Probably the only people who like living there are those who have lived there their entire life and don’t know anything else. It is the epitome of low class and could never be mistaken for places like San Fran, San Diego or Seattle. Most people are dirty, smelly, uneducated Chicanos who can hardly speak English—so little in fact that you cant even go up to the drive-through at Taco Bell or McDonalds without having to ask them repeat their words.
It has become a sprawling stain of ghettos, concrete, dirt, liqour stores, and angry people who wont hesitate to cut you off on the freeway and then have the audacity to yell at you in Spanish. Air pollution is becoming a big concern and the entire city is covered in a orange smog during rush hour. Many of El Paso’s new residents come to the city via walking across the Rio Grande River with nothing but the clothes on their back, making illegal immigration a HUGE issue.
El Paso is among the poorest, dirtiest and most polluted cities in America. I don’t know why it has such a low crime rate as poor and dirty as it is and practically part of Mexico.
El Paso is the perfect example of what illegal immigration will do to every large city in America if our nation’s “leaders” don’t tackle the problem now. The best view of this hellhole town is in the rearview mirror on I-10 headed toward Houston.
