Trump Supporters Form Human ‘Wall’ Along U.S.-Mexico Border

Trump Supporters Form Human ‘Wall’ Along U.S.-Mexico Border

Following President Donald Trump's executive order in September to erect an 18-foot steel bollard wall to replace the existing pedestrian fencing in El Paso, he called the existing chain-link fence "bad enough".

"With the president being in El Paso, it provides an opportunity to test a message that's very different than President Trump's message", communications consultant Hector Nieto said. We will build a Human Wall if necessary. The FBI's Uniform Crime Report shows that El Paso's annual number of reported violent crimes dropped from almost 5,000 in 1995 to around 2,700 in 2016.

El Paso's Republican mayor, Dee Margo, said the city had been safe for years before the wall was built. 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. "And though it is hard to welcome him to El Paso while he continues to proliferate such untruths, we do welcome him to meet with local officials to become properly informed about our great and safe region".

In his State of the Union speech last week, Trump said the border fence separating El Paso from Mexico had reduced the city's high crime rate.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be rewarded after blistering caretaker start?

O'Rourke told Oprah Winfrey last week he would make a final decision about running for president by the end of the month. But violent crimes declined in the years since that spike and before construction of the border fence took place.

O'Rourke would bring fundraising and grassroots firepower to an already crowded Democratic field hoping to take on Trump in next year's election. Ted Cruz in November.

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. The rally will begin with new El Paso representative Veronica Escobar speaking at the rally, then the group will march to Chalio Acosta Park. Weakened by the longest government shutdown in American history, Trump is also contending with the ongoing investigation into Russian election meddling and a flurry of investigations by newly empowered majority Democrats in the House.
