Beto O'Rourke to join march against wall countering President Trump visit

Beto O'Rourke to join march against wall countering President Trump visit

"It's a stated fact that the wall has stopped crime, and it has lowered in El Paso", Sid Miller said, adding that an extended border wall is "the most humanitarian" solution to border security. But many in El Paso, site of Trump's rally Monday night, say the city was safe for decades and embodies a cross-border spirit that transcends walls rather than prove they work.

As Trump prepares for his Monday night rally, some of his supporters have been showing their enthusiasm for his proposed border wall and their concern for protecting our nation's citizens by linking arms in the form of a line along a part of the southern border on Saturday.

"If people had contacted me about our attorney general's remarks, I would have corrected it at that time", Margo said. Former El Paso state Representative Beto O'Rourke will be speaking at this event and one of the highlights will be the Baby Trump balloon that will be flying at the event. Among the "whereas" statements in the resolution is one stating that "it is possible that false statements about El Paso will continue to be made" by Trump at the rally.


The El Paso Times, responding to Paxton's claim last month, noted that violent crime in El Paso peaked in 1993 and dropped 34% between that year and 2006. Both sides face a Friday deadline to reach an agreement or face another possible shutdown - Trump also has threatened to declare a national emergency to address what he describes as a security crisis.

Margo said Monday he was "pleased" Trump was coming to El Paso for a rally and that he hoped to speak with him. Thanks to his better-than-expected performance against Cruz, his spirited message on the campaign trail, and his mastery of social media, there were immediate calls by some Democrats for O'Rourke to run for president.

Their demonstration comes ahead of Trump's first campaign rally of the year. "Don't take the bait".
