Veterans Face Down Pro-Trump Caravan, Defend Massive “Defund the Wall” Street Mural

HeadlineSep 14, 2020

In Texas, hundreds of Trump supporters drove through the city of Laredo on Saturday in support of the U.S.-Mexico border wall. The “Trump train” demonstration was partly organized by the National Border Patrol Council, which planned to drive over a giant street mural reading “Defund the Wall. Fund Our Futures.” They canceled those plans after veterans of the U.S. military mobilized to repaint and defend the mural.
