On Monday, White House Resident Donald Trump will be visiting our part of the country. No, he’s not coming to New Mexico, but he’ll be far closer to Bernalillo County than we want him to be. He’ll be visiting our neighbors just south of us in the city that, in his State of the Union address, he claimed was one of the most crime-ridden in the nation until he fixed that problem with great border security.
Yes, Donald Trump has scheduled a MAGA rally for Monday in El Paso, and a group called Women’s March El Paso is planning a warm West Texas welcome for him, and we’re invited. The demonstration is called “March for Truth: Stop the Wall, Stop the Lies” and is scheduled for 5 PM on Monday at 801 S. San Marcial St., right across the street from the Chamizal National Memorial. The choice of the location has historic significance, since the Chamizal National Memorial commemorates the peaceful settlement of a more than 100-year border dispute between the United States and Mexico in 1963 that resulted from the natural change of course of the Rio Grande between the cities of El Paso and Juárez.
They’re also doing a poster party tomorrow, in preparation for the actual march, from 11 AM to 1 PM at the El Paso Democratic Party office at 1401 Montana, Suite E. If you’re available either day, or both, you might want to be there to help make Trump understand that the people of the U.S. and Mexico really can be good neighbors without dividing us with a wall.
We MUST keep working together!
Chair, Democratic Party of Bernalillo County
