Beto O'Rourke to join march against wall countering President Trump visit

Beto O'Rourke speaks to Oprah Winfrey on stage during a taping of her TV show in the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York, U.S., February 5, 2019.

The Trump campaign's chief operating officer, Michael Glassner, said in a statement: "As the president continues his fight to secure our border, there's no better place to demonstrate that walls work than in El Paso".

Ted Cruz last fall - and other activists on a conference call to denounce Trump's push for a border wall.

Violent crime did not drop in El Paso "immediately" after a "powerful barrier" was put up. " The resistance ranges from officials in the border town of Nogales, Arizona taking down his newly installed, flesh-slicing, maximum-security-prison-flavored coils of razor wire on an existing border fence - WTF on the US side yet - universally blasted as "inhuman" to New Mexico's governor withdrawing most National Guard troops from the border, condemning Trump's "charade (of) fear-mongering" and even making a wild video in which she hurls herself through multiple walls to show what she thinks of the whole ignoring-real-problems-to-build-a-stupid-racist-wall thing". During the event, he will be speaking to counter what he calls the "lies and a false narrative about the U.S. -Mexico border" that the president will promulgate. "Safe not because of walls, and not in spite of the fact that we are a city of immigrants".

CNN noted at the time that the connection was inaccurate, and Margo, a Republican, told CNN's Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto on "Newsroom" Monday that the drop in crime came prior to the barrier construction, and that Trump was "wrong" when he claimed otherwise. Both sides face a Friday deadline to reach an agreement or face another possible shutdown - Trump also has threatened to declare a national emergency to address what he describes as a security crisis.

President Trump is gearing up for his first rally of the 2020 campaign season.

El Paso County lawmakers passed a resolution ahead of Trump's visit, saying the city's residents are "disillusioned by [the president's] lies regarding the border and our community". So far, O'Rourke has not made a decision. "Don't take the bait".
