Trump supporters form human wall at southern border

Trump supporters form human wall at southern border”

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.

The activists appeared to universally support the president and his long-held pledge to build a border wall, and they seemed to be making their own symbolic barrier where the border fence now finishes.

A standoff between the president and Democrats in Congress over Trump's demand for $5.7 billion for border wall construction led to an unprecedented 35-day partial federal government shutdown from just before Christmas until late last month.

The Make America Great Again rally will take place in El Paso, Texas on Monday at the County Coliseum.

Supporters of President Donald Trump's proposed border security measures gathered to form a human "wall" along a section of the U.S. -Mexico border in New Mexico on Saturday. Trump's rally, hard by the "successful border fence", will be met by the Baby Trump blimp and a galvanized March For Truth and Celebration of El Paso featuring Beto O'Rourke, who often cites the contributions of immigrants to his city.

In a tweet, El Paso Mayor Dee Margo, a Republican, panned the president: "El Paso was NEVER one of the MOST unsafe cities in the U.S. We've had a fence for 10 years and it has impacted illegal immigration and curbed criminal activity".

"Tonight, President Donald Trump is going to El Paso, Texas to create a circus of fear and paranoia, like he always does, to tell lies about the border and about immigration", former San Antonio mayor and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro said in a video released Monday. It is NOT the sole deterrent.

In her penned letter to the White House, Escobar asked the president to apologize to the residents of the city for the comments.
