    Nearly three-fourths of Democrats say that some responsibility for the mass shootings in the US is borne by the president, according to a new USA Today/Ipsos poll.

    Less than a fourth of Republicans blame him.

    Most people, regardless of their political party, say lawmakers should cancel their summer holiday and stay in Washington to work on gun laws, according to the poll.

  10. Adding fuel to the fire

    BBC News, El Paso, Texas

    Political discourse is the last thing on the minds of most El Pasoans right now. The community’s loss is a personal one, and they’re still trying to resolve how to heal.

    But President Trump’s arrival months after he held a rally in the city, does ignite fear.

    Local immigration lawyer Christina Garcia says the rally he held in February left residents shaken by the arrival of anti-immigrant, Trump supporters.

    A visit from President Trump could just add fuel to the fire in an already heartbroken city.

  11. Meanwhile, ICE arrests hundreds of immigrants

    As the president makes his way to visit victims, first responders and families in El Paso, US immigration authorities have announced one of the largest Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids in years.

    The raids at food plants in Mississippi saw over 600 mostly Latino workers arrested, local media say.

    The gunman in El Paso is believed to have carried out the attack that left 22 dead to combat a "Hispanic invasion".

    Jordan and Andre Anchondo

    Tito Anchondo, who lost his brother Andre and sister-in-law Jordan in the shooting at El Paso's Walmart, voiced his support for Trump earlier this week.

    "As an American, you need to stand behind the president," he told the BBC.

    He noted there were differing views in his hometown, with Trump supporters and those who back Democrat Beto O'Rourke, but said everyone coexisted happily.

    His father Gilbert, he added, is a Mexican American who is proud of his roots and has always said America is the greatest nation on earth.

    Both said they were pleased with Trump's comments in the immediate aftermath of the tragedy, and the fact he had expressed his sympathy.

    "Mr Trump made a good statement," said Gilbert Anchondo. "He's making reforms and we appreciate it."

    Read the full interview: "Victim's father says he forgives his son's killer."

  17. Beto O'Rourke speaking in El Paso

    Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke is speaking at a counter-rally in El Paso.

    "We live in a country that is not safe, that refuses to pass laws to end gun violence," O'Rourke said.

    He criticised Trump for "vilifying" immigrants.

    "That inaction in the face of violence and intolerance will find us, and it did."

    Trump is expected to land in El Paso soon.

    He also announced that Texas will be providing over $5.5m (£4.5m) in immediate financial assistance for law enforcement agencies and the community of El Paso.

  19. Trump complains about 'misrepresenting' lawmakers

    Echoing earlier criticism from his social media manager, Trump has attacked the local Democrats who accompanied him to the hospital.

    Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown was a "failed Presidential Candidate (0%)" he said.

    Mr Brown had said some nice things about the president: "He was comforting. He did the right things."

    But the senator also told reporters he had tried to engage Mr Trump about gun control.

    Perhaps that is what has enraged the president.
