People began lining up at 4:45 AM for Saturday’s rally featuring lightning rod Republican presidential contender Donald Trump. Two hours before the event’s scheduled 2 PM local start time, the crowd extended around the block, and the national media had shown up in force.
It’s yet another indication that Trump’s plainspoken, controversial comments on America’s immigration crisis are resonating with people, especially in the illegal immigration-afflicted state of Arizona.
The planned event had already expanded in size several times as Trump dominated the news cycle in the past week. 5,000 people are expected at today’s event.
As security swept the event location, inside the hall some of Trump’s messaging is already in place: several signs discussed the illegal immigrant crime wave and the dead bodies left in its wake.
Breitbart News is on the scene with multiple reporters and will be giving updates on all Trump news throughout the day.
