Supporters of President Donald Trump and his border wall
gathered at the border with Mexico, Saturday, hand in one to form a human
own reporting, reports Newsweek.
Dozens of pro-Trump activists fluttering and carrying American flags
red "Make America Great Again" hats stood side by side while singing
"Build a wall" on the border between Sunland Park and Anscra, Mexico CBS
affiliate CBS Austin reported.
The activists, who seem to be universal for the
President and his long-cherished ambition to build a boundary wall seemed to be
creating their own symbolic barrier where the border fence is currently completed.
They have said that their main goal is to call further
construction of a border tree at the border with Mexico. Their
striking demonstration coincides with an upcoming Trump rally in El Paso,
Texas, the first of 2019.
The Washington Post reported that it will be a counter-demonstration
held in the border town on Monday. Former democratic congressman Beto O & # 39; Rourke
is ready to be the & # 39; Mars for the Truth & # 39; to lead, as protesters were against
to the wall of Trump gathers a mile away from the El Paso County Coliseum, the location
for the Trump rally, and marching in an attempt to refute the president's hard line
attitude towards immigration.
"The president comes to El Paso on Monday, promises one
wall and will repeat its lies about the dangers that immigrants form. "- Beto O & # 39; Rourke
O & # 39; Rourke, who has been seen as a possible candidate for the 2020
Democratic presidential appointment, avoided to name the president by name as he
announced that he would join the march. It is supported by a constellation of
non-profit organizations, including Border Network for Human Rights and Women & # 39; s
March El Paso.
During his State of the Union speech, Trump emphasized El Paso
as a positive example of what border barriers can achieve.
"The border town of El Paso, Texas, used to be extreme
high rates of violent crime – one of the highest in the province, and considered
one of the most dangerous cities in our country, "Trump said. Right now
powerful barrier in place, El Paso is one of our safest cities. "
The statements have been widely rejected by officials in the
city. "El Paso was never one of the most dangerous cities in the US.
We have had a fence for 10 years and this has affected illegal immigration and
confined criminal activity. It is not the only deterrent. Law enforcement in our
community will keep us safe, "tweeted the mayor of El Paso, Dee Margo
the address of the State of the Union.
Democratic representative for Texas Veronica Escobar has asked
the president to apologize for his comments, Good King News reported. "This one
disruptions of our vibrant community are detrimental to our reputation and
degrade our mind, "she wrote.
