While thousands of Central American migrants wait to enter the United States, a group of American pro-Trump activists linked arms as a human border wall between El Paso, Texas and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico on Saturday in a symbolic gesture supporting President Trump's push for a permanent border wall.
In spite of the President's appearance, failed Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke plans on spoiling the fun by holding a protest march outside the venue of the MAGA rally.
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. So far, O'Rourke has not made a decision.
In his State of the Union, President Donald Trump said a "powerful barrier" had cut crime rates and turned El Paso, Texas, from one of the nation's most unsafe cities to one of its safest.
The statements have been widely rejected by city officials.
"We are here to bring attention to the fact that there isn't a wall here", he said. "Law enforcement in our community continues to keep us safe", El Paso Mayor Dee Margo tweeted following the State of the Union address.
In her penned letter to the White House, Escobar asked the president to apologize to the residents of the city for the comments.
