"The border city of El Paso, Texas, used to have extremely high rates of violent crime-one of the highest in the country, and considered one of our nation's most unsafe cities".

In a conference call with reporters, O'Rourke said his counter-rally two hundred yards from the Trump event would be a "powerful, beautiful" response to "Trump's lies about our community, the U.S. -Mexico border, immigrants, about Mexicans".

"Hopefully we'll get a chance to visit and talk about and see firsthand what the border really looks like and how we are so closely intertwined, for nearly 400 years, between El Paso and Juarez", Margo said.
