In El Paso, Texas, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officials abruptly called off a so-called crowd-control drill planned for Tuesday near a Latino neighborhood, after voting rights groups warned the exercises were likely to suppress voter turnout. Lawmakers, activists and the American Civil Liberties Union said the timing of the drill appeared to be aimed at intimidating likely Democratic voters on Election Day. President Trump made anti-immigrant hysteria the centerpiece of his campaign in the midterm elections, making false claims about gang members, criminals and “unknown Middle Easterners” taking part in a caravan of migrants heading across Mexico toward the U.S. border.
