President Trump Preps for El Paso Rally

President Trump Preps for El Paso Rally Trump Supporters Form Human ‘Wall’ Along U.S.-Mexico Border

Trump made the claim last week in his State of the Union Address when he said El Paso "used to have extremely high rates of violent crime - one of the highest in the country, and considered one of our nation's most risky cities".

Trump's rally comes just four days before the possibility of another government shutdown. Waving American flags and wearing red "Make America great again" hats, the protesters stood side by side and chanted "Build a wall" at the boundary between Sunland Park and Anapra, Mexico, CBS Austin reported.

He plans to continue making his case for increased border security, which includes funding for the border wall. Former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke will join a one-mile march past Trump's rally and give a speech across the street at about the same time the President plans to take the stage.

"The president is coming to El Paso Monday".

In January, O'Rourke said that walls on the border "ensure death".

O'Rourke is due to take part in the "March for Truth: Stop the Wall, Stop the Lies" event that will pass close to Trump's venue at the El Paso County Coliseum.

A dispute in El Paso is growing as President Donald Trump is scheduled to visit the city Monday to hold a rally supporting a border wall.

In an interview Monday on Fox News, the commissioner of Texas' Department of Agriculture touted the effectiveness of fencing in El Paso, saying that crime dropped significantly in the city.

El Paso native Beto O'Rourke, a former Democratic congressman now mulling a presidential run, says barriers are inevitable but that Trump's calls for an expanded wall are the "cynical rhetoric of war, of invasions, of fear". "These distortions about our vibrant community are harmful to our reputation and degrade our spirit", she wrote.
