Beto O’Rourke to march, speak against border wall during Trump rally in El Paso

Beto O’Rourke is not shying away from the spotlight as President Donald Trump prepares to hold a rally in the El Paso hometown of the former congressman and potential presidential candidate.

On Monday evening, O’Rourke will lead a march through the city and then speak at a “Celebration of El Paso” event at 7 p.m. local time — across the street from Trump’s rally and at the same time it is set to begin, according to O’Rourke’s team. The events, which will feature music and other speakers, are intended to highlight El Paso’s strength as a binational community — and push back against Trump’s long-sought border wall.

The rally comes as O’Rourke nears a decision on whether to join the Democratic race to challenge Trump in 2020 following a closer-than-expected loss to U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in November. On Tuesday, O’Rourke promised a 2020 decision by the end of the month.

Earlier Monday, O’Rourke will join his successor in Congress, Rep. Veronica Escobar, for a conference call to “denounce Trump’s campaign rally in El Paso and his fixation on a racist and useless border wall,” organizers said. And on Friday evening, O’Rourke returned to his favorite blogging platform — Medium — to offer a prebuttal to Trump’s trip.

“Monday we will welcome the president to one of the safest cities in the United States,” O’Rourke wrote. “Safe not because of walls, and not in spite of the fact that we are a city of immigrants. Safe because we are a city of immigrants and because we treat each other with dignity and respect.”

President Trump to Visit El Paso Monday

White House officials announced Wednesday morning that President Donald Trump will hold an event at the El Paso County Coliseum in El Paso on Monday, February 11th.

The event will be held at the El Paso County Coliseum, located at  4100 East Paisano Drive at 7 pm.  This is the President’s seventh trip to Texas since announcing his bid and winning the White House, but his first to El Paso.

Tickets for the event are available online at the President’s re-election website.

The announcement of the trip comes less than twelve hours after the President made false statements about El Paso during the State of the Union Address, saying that at one time the city was the ‘most dangerous’ in the country until the border wall was built.

Our partners at the Texas Tribune report that President Trump’s Campaign Manager, Michael Glassner said “As the President continues his fight to secure our border, there’s no better place to demonstrate that walls work than in El Paso,”   To read the complete article, click here.
