Hundreds of people showed up early Monday to ensure their place in line ahead of the evening event in Rio Rancho, a suburb of Albuquerque.

A Trump supporter shared the photo on Twitter, saying “Don’t let the media fool you!! Waiting in line for the Trump rally! A whole lot of everyone here! African American, Hispanic, Latino, Native American!!”

Schools and some local government offices were closed in preparation for the president’s visit to New Mexico’s largest metro area. Law enforcement agencies also warned residents about roads that would be closed as the president’s motorcade travels to the rally.

Oath Keepers, a patriot movement, also share the photos and said, “Long lines already forming. Trump supporters started lining up at 6 a.m.”

Let’s look at the line.

Meanwhile, President Trump wrote on Twitter, “Big crowd expected in New Mexico tonight, where we will WIN. Your Border Wall is getting stronger each and every day—see you in a few hours!”

According to his campaign, President Trump is expected to discuss the state’s improving economy, along with job growth in the area since he took office. Other topics that will be mentioned during the rally are a crisis in illegal immigration and a thriving local oil industry in New Mexico.
