Former U.S. Rep. and potential 2020 contender Beto O’Rourke will speak at a march at the same time President Donald Trump will be holding his campaign rally Monday night in El Paso, Texas.
O'Rourke, who represented El Paso, says he plans to "tell the true story about the border."
We need everyone to join us tomorrow evening in El Paso as we celebrate our community. The country will be watching, and it falls on all of us to tell the true story about the border. https://t.co/RHsqqvWJX7— Beto O'Rourke (@BetoORourke) February 11, 2019
— EL PASO CALLING —— Beto O'Rourke (@BetoORourke) February 9, 2019
Come one, come all!
A bold, confident, ambitious message for the country from the U.S. - Mexico border.
*** JOIN US ***
Monday 5pm at Bowie High School — 801 S San Marcial St. in El Paso, TX, USA. https://t.co/giyL6u3EVL
O’Rourke’s office released the following statement:
"Beto O’Rourke will join with his city on Monday evening to show the country the reality of the border -- a vibrant, safe, binational community that proudly celebrates its culture, history, diversity and status as a city of immigrants. While some try to stoke fear and paranoia, to spread lies and a false narrative about the U.S.-Mexico border and to demand a 2,000 mile wall along it at a time of record safety and security, El Paso will come together for a march and celebration that highlights the truth."
