They are not far from El Paso at all, and they are pretty cool. I have hiked in the Franklins and they are OK, but not much more than that, in my opinion. I am not knowledgeable about safety issues though. I will say that they are a Texas State Park, so I would figure there is a certain amount of safety that goes along with that.
Maybe the author of this page would know:

You might be confusing the Organ Mountains of NM (which I've visited and felt safe) with Organ Pipe National Monument in AZ.
I can say for certain that I would not backpack/overnight in the Organ Pipe National Monument. I suggest asking for input from Arizona folks, esp. Tucson locals. Personally, we will not go to the Organ Mountains un-armed and I sure as heck won't take my folks into the back-country there.
I guess the whole "murdered US Park Ranger" issue in 2002 (http://www.kriseggle.org/kris.htm) is bound to make one a bit weary.
As for the Organ Mountains in NM, though, I don't see a reason to be concerned.
Have fun in the Gualdalupes. I'll be returning there soon.
