A tense El Paso braces for Trump with a message: We're a diverse, safe city and have been for decades


Trump visits this border region tonight to once again make his case for a wall, but many El Pasoans view the trip as an opportunity to take back their narrative by demonstrating that their city is civil, tolerant, safe -- and far from being a dangerous, wild west, no-man's land.

The scene is set for a simultaneous showdown between Republican leaders and some 6,000 who will rally with them, and a large number of Democrats and disgruntled El Pasoans who will rally in protest a short distance away.

"As presidential rhetoric goes, the setting and likely subject matter will undoubtedly reflect a sort of one-upmanship on the part of Trump," said Richard Pineda, director of the Sam Donaldson Communications Center at the University of Texas at El Paso. "Not only is the border a big part of this community, it's Beto O'Rourke's hometown. This is the rhetorical equivalent of a double dog dare for O'Rourke to make a White House run."

"We want Trump to know we are a strong community that will not accept lies about our city," said Linda Rivas, executive director of Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center. Rivas is helping organize the march and has called for civility during the president's visit to set an example of the strength of diversity in a divided nation. "Walls don't make us safer. It's the people, the community that makes us safe."
