Where are you seeing this problem? On the main map at openstreetmap.org, both El Paso and Ciudad Juárez look ok to me, and appear in the right countries.

I'm guessing you mean that as you zoom out the Ciudad Juarez label gets rendered rather than the El Paso one?

If you use MYRADAR program all it show is Juarez no El Paso and it is a OSM

What is the MYRADAR program and what does it have to do with OpenStreetMap? Can you post a picture?

I have tried the myradar app on Android in case it is that, and of the four free background maps, three (Gray, Roads and Topo) show El Paso and one (Aerial) shows Ciudad Juarez as you zoom out. The (i) on each map mentions (c) Openstreetmap Contributors and the Licences and Attributions mention Mapbox - see perhaps their example site here https://api.mapbox.com/styles/v1/mapbox/satellite-streets-v11.html?title=true&access_token=pk.eyJ1IjoibWFwYm94IiwiYSI6ImNpejY4M29iazA2Z2gycXA4N2pmbDZmangifQ.-g_vE53SD2WrJ6tFX7QHmA#4.3/31.15/-104.3

My guess is that whoever is generating the rendering is either prioritising based on the higher population figure on the relevant nodes, or the capital=6 tag.
