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

Today, the president will be holding a rally at the El Paso County Coliseum.
Trump was bound for El Paso, aiming to reshape the debate around the wall following a damaging shutdown fight and with his signature 2016 campaign promise hanging in limbo.
President Donald Trump recently pledged that the United States would build a "human wall" if necessary to secure our borders, and it looks like some of his supporters are taking his words to heart ahead of his El Paso, Texas, rally - literally. "They're the ones hurtling us towards a shutdown". That's despite being just across the border from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, a city plagued by drug violence. Margo said while Trump was right to call El Paso safe, he was wrong to attribute its drop in crime to the construction of a barrier along the border - a remark he said Trump had echoed from Texas GOP Attorney General Ken Paxton.
"Beto O'Rourke has returned to his hometown to protest President Trump but Texans know that physical barriers work", said RNC spokesperson Christiana Purves.
Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, a Texas Democrat who's mulling a 2020 presidential run, is set to speak at the conclusion of a "March for Truth" organized by liberal groups. "El Paso has never had 'one of the highest rates of violent crime in the entire country, ' according to Federal Bureau of Investigation data". In fact, the city's violent crime rate increased 5.5 percent from fiscal year 2007 (the year before construction of the fence started) to 2010 (the year after construction was completed in mid-2009). While few Democratic candidates have focused on immigration in their launches, O'Rourke has described Trump's calls for the wall as the "cynical rhetoric of war, of invasions, of fear". "Now, with a powerful barrier in place, El Paso is one of our safest cities". El Paso's had an estimated population of 683,577 people in 2017, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
The S&P 500 hit a session low shortly after the news that Trump was unlikely to meet Xi this month was first reported by CNBC. The benchmark 10-year yield slid four basis points to 2.66 percent, the lowest in almost a week.
