EL PASO, Texas (CBS4) -- Former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke will speak at a march at the same time President Donald Trump will be holding his campaign rally at the El Paso County Coliseum on Monday.
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.
The march will begin at Bowie High School at 5 p.m. and people will then march to Chalio Acosta Sports Center where the celebration of El Paso will happen.
O’Rourke is scheduled to speak at 7 p.m. from Chalio Acosta Sports Center.
