The city is the headquarters of one Fortune 500 and three publicly traded companies, as well as home to the Medical Center of the Americas, the only medical research and care provider complex in West Texas and southern New Mexico, and the University of Texas at El Paso, the city's primary university. The city hosts the annual Sun Bowl, the second oldest bowl game in the country.
El Paso is a town and a municipality on the island of La Palma, Province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain. It is situated in the middle of the island. The population of the municipality is 7,928 (2013) and the area is 135.92km², making it the largest municipality on the island of La Palma. The mean elevation is 600 m. The territory of the municipality includes the Caldera de Taburiente, a giant caldera constituting a national park.
Many footpaths already crisscrossed La Palma before the Spanish conquest. A number of mountain passes east of present-day El Paso enabled cross-island communications. One of these was Ajerjo Pass by which the island's Spanish discoverer, Alonso Fernandez de Lugo, attempted to enter the Caldera de Taburiente, hence its local name the Captain's Pass (Paso del Capitán). The village of El Paso was named after this mountain pass by association.
On 3 May 1492 the mentioned Fernandez de Lugo finishes the conquest of the island of La Palma by the Spanish when conquering the last remaining stronghold of the native Guanches, the kingdom of Aceró. To this goal, Fernandez deceitfully invited its king Tanausú to an interview, to have him imprisoned on appearance. The island was made directly subject to the Spanish Crown, a situation which would last until 1812. In this year the new Spanish Constitution paved the way for decentralisation of the Canary Islands and subdivision into municipalities.
Clay Fletcher is leaving South Carolina and heading west. A rebel officer during the Civil War and also a lawyer, he wants to ease back into law practice with something not too difficult, so he travels to El Paso, Texas with estate documents to get the signature of an attorney there, Henry Jeffers.
Stagecoach Nellie steals his wallet along the way. Then, in a saloon, Clay sees a man convicted of murder by a drunken judge in a trial held in a saloon. The judge is Jeffers, and when Clay speaks up on the defendant's behalf, he is charged with contempt of court. Unable to pay the fine, his fancy clothing is auctioned off.
Clay is rescued by rancher Nacho Vazquez, who offers him a place to stay. He also meets the judge's daughter, Susan Jeffers, who owns a hat shop. Clay learns the man found guilty of murder was framed by rich land owner Bert Donner and his stooge, Sheriff La Farge.
La Farge brutally beats and jails a man named John Elkins who had once been a friend to Clay, who volunteers to represent him. He needs the judge to be sober, so old-timer Pesky offers to take Jeffers out of town and away from the saloon for a while. La Farge is furious and tries to have Clay killed.
(Marty Robbins) Out in the West Texas town of El Paso I fell in love with a Mexican girl Nighttime would find me in Rosa's Cantina Music would play and Felina would whirl Blacker than night where the eyes of Felina Wicked and evil while casting a spell My love was strong for this Mexican maiden I was in love, but in vain I could tell One night a wild young cowboy came in Wild as the West Texas wind Dashing and daring, a drink he was sharing With wicked Felina, the girl that I loved So in anger I challenged his right for the love of this maiden Down went his hand for the gun that he wore My challenge was answered, in less than a heartbeat The handsome young stranger lay dead on the floor Just for a moment I stood there in silence Shocked by the foul evil deed I had done Many thoughts ran through my mind as I stood there I had but one chance and that was to run Out through the back door of Rose's I ran Out where the horses were tied I caught a good one, it looked like it could run Up on his back and away I did ride Just as fast as I could from the West Texas town of El Paso Out thru the badlands of New Mexico Back in El Paso, my life would be worthless Everything's gone in life nothing is left It's been so long since I've seen the young maiden My love is stronger than my fear of death I saddled up and away I did go Riding alone in the dark Maybe tomorrow a bullet may find me Tonight nothing's worse than this pain in my heart And at last here I am on the hill overlooking El Paso I can see Rose's Cantina below My love is strong and it pushes me onward Down off the hill to Felina I go Off to my right I see five mounted cowboys Off to my left ride a dozen or more shouting and shooting, I can't let them catch me I've got to make it to Rose's back door Something is dreadfully wrong for, I feel A deep burning pain in my side Something is dreadfully wrong, for I feel A deep burning pain in my side Although I am trying to stay in the saddle I'm getting weary, unable to ride It's getting harder to stay in the saddle I'm getting weary, unable to ride But my love for Felina is strong and I rise where I've fallen Though I am weary, I can't stop to rest I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle I feel the bullet go deep in my chest From out of nowhere, Felina has found me Kissing my cheek as she kneels by my side Cradled by two loving arms that I'll die for

The Democratic-run city of El Paso has its own busing strategy and has sent more people to New York City and Chicago than Texas has. City officials argue these two cities are the destinations of choice of illegal foreign nationals arriving in El Paso.
