Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will talk to a packed house in Texas most liberal city, Austin, Texas, on Tuesday night. He is expected to discuss border security, the impact of illegal immigration on wages, trade issues that impact farmers, and support for law and order. The live stream of the event will begin at 7:30 p.m. CDT.
Earlier in the afternoon, Mr. Trump appeared on a Sean Hannity Town Hall event that was taped for broadcast later Tuesday night. That show will be broadcast on Fox News Channel at 9 p.m. CDT. Mr. Trump is expected to talk about border security and will be supported by members of the National Border Patrol Council. Texas Governor Rick Perry was also scheduled to appear with Mr. Trump according to his spokesman, Stanley Gerdes.
The crowd is so large in Austin, the Austin Police Department just tweeted out that there is no more parking available.

Protesters and supporters alike were out to greet Mr. Trump in the Texas Capital City.
Perhaps the most popular couple seen during the lead-up to the Trump Rally were a couple dressed as “federal prison first-couple” Bill and Hillary Clinton.

One woman was apparently escorted out of the Hannity Town Hall event as she was seen holding up some kind of doll.

Not to be outdone, Trump protesters had plenty of signs to show their love for the GOP nominee.

Any protest in Austin would not be complete without a communist contingent.
