Basics of El Paso

El Paso means, "The pass" in Spanish. The county seat of El Paso County, Texas, the City of El Paso lies in far West Texas. The economy of El Paso is growing in leaps and bounds; and so are employment opportunities. The auto transport industry can attest to this trend as there are a significant number of requests from individuals who want to ship their car or truck to this great city.

El Paso stands on the Rio Grande, across the border from Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico. The two cities, along with Las Cruces, form a combined international metropolitan area, sometimes referred as the Paso del Norte or El Paso–Juárez–Las Cruces, with over 2.7 million people. The El Paso-Juárez region is the largest bilingual, bi-national work force in the Western Hemisphere.

Brief History

The El Paso region hosted settlers for thousands of years, dating from the hunter-gatherer period. The earliest known settlers in the region were maize farmers. At the time of the arrival of the Spanish, the Manso, Suma, and Jumano tribes populated the area and were subsequently incorporated into the Mestizo culture, along with immigrants from central Mexico, captives from Comanchería, and genízaros of various ethnic groups. The Mescalero Apache were also present. Ysleta Mission was constructed in 1680 by the Spanish.

Settlers such as Simeon Hart and Hugh Stephenson established thriving communities of American settlers owing allegiance to Texas. Stephenson, who had married into the local Hispanic aristocracy, established the Rancho de San José de la Concordia. The ranch became the nucleus of Anglo and Hispanic settlement within the limits of modern-day El Paso. In 1844, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo effectively made the settlements on the north bank of the river a formal American settlement. Old El Paso del Norte on the Mexican side of the river became Juarez. The present Texas–New Mexico boundary placing El Paso on the Texas side was drawn in the Compromise of 1850.

Mining and other industries gradually developed in the El Paso area. The El Paso and Northeastern Railway was chartered in 1897, to help extract the natural resources of surrounding areas, especially in southeastern New Mexico Territory. The 1920s and 1930s saw the emergence of major business development in the city, partially enabled by Prohibition-era bootlegging. However, after World War I, the military demobilization, an agricultural economic depression hit the city hard. El Paso's population declined through the end of World War II.

During and following the World War II, military expansion in the area, as well as oil and gas discoveries in the Permian Basin area East of El Paso, helped to engender rapid economic expansion in the mid-1900s. Copper smelting, oil refining, and the proliferation of labor intensive industries (particularly garment making) led the city's growth. Additionally, the departure of the region's rural population, which was mostly white, to cities like El Paso, brought a short term burst of capital and labor. The post-war expansion slowed again in the 1960s, but the city continued to grow with the annexation of surrounding neighborhoods and in large part because of its significant economic relationship with Mexico.

Economy and Culture

El Paso's job growth since the 1960s has been in wholesale, retail, services and government. Employment in health services in El Paso has grown by approximately 455 percent since 1962. Health service still is not a "basic" industry. Federal, state and local civilian employment have also shown marked growth in El Paso, rising from 26,400 in 1975 to 45,300 in 1989, an increase of 71.5 percent. The growth of government jobs has come in part because of the rising law enforcement and administrative demands of border management. The increased border patrol impacts auto transport carriers as well as other modes of commercial transportation. Trucks and buses are routinely searched for illegal immigrants seeking cover from the U.S. Border Patrol and Customs Service. As anticipated, searches will slow commercial buses and trucks in their estimated arrival times for delivery.

Today, El Paso's major industries are Defense and Education. It is rates #53 on the Forbes list of Best Places For Business and Careers. The median home price is $138,837 and the gross Metro Product standing at $30.9 Billion.
