'Monday we will welcome the president to one of the safest cities in the United States,' O'Rourke wrote. 'Safe not because of walls, and not in spite of the fact that we are a city of immigrants. Safe because we are a city of immigrants and because we treat each other with dignity and respect.'
O'Rourke will lead a march through the city and then speak at a 'Celebration of El Paso' event at 7 pm, across the street from Trump's rally and at the same time it is set to begin, according to O'Rourke's team. The events, which will feature music and other speakers, are intended to highlight El Paso's strength as a binational community, and push back against Trump's long-sought border wall.
