El Paso County is located in the far south western corner of Texas where the states of New Mexico and Texas, and the country of Mexico meet.

El Paso is presently its largest city.  Across the Rio Grande is Chihuahua's largest city, Ciudad Juarez.  Today it is a major international port of entry, and from its earliest days has been a significant customs and immigrations checkpoint between the United States and Mexico.

Immigration records are available at the US National Archives for immigration via this location.

Other locations within El Paso County include Anthony, Canutillo, and Fabens
