President Trump’s kicks off the 2020 re-election Campaign this Monday in El Paso, Texas. The area of Texas is noteworthy because El Paso sits right along the United States Southern Border, and President Trump rivals up against Democrats on the wall.
“The border city of El Paso, Texas, used to have extremely high rates of violent crime — one of the highest in the country, and considered one of our nation’s most dangerous cities,” President Trump said. “Now, with a powerful barrier in place, El Paso is one of our safest cities.”
Democrats are organizing a “counter protest”, addressing the ceremony is El Paso’s homegrown, and unsuccessful Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke. “Beto O’Rourke will join with his city on Monday evening to show the country the reality of the border — a vibrant, safe, binational community that proudly celebrates its culture, history, diversity, and status as a city of immigrants,” O’Rourke’s team said.
They added in a statement to The Hill; “While some try to stoke fear and paranoia, to spread lies and a false narrative about the U.S.-Mexico border and to demand a 2,000 mile wall along it at a time of record safety and security, El Paso will come together for a march and celebration that highlights the truth.”
