People near EP County Coliseum prepare for President Trump's rally's impact

The merchandise stands are ready for President Donald Trump's rally at the El Paso County Coliseum.

The merchandise stands are ready for President Donald Trump's rally at the El Paso County Coliseum.

But, those who live by the coliseum may not be.

"It's going to be pretty hectic,” Jesus Aguayo said.

"It's going to be packed,” Christopher Llamas said.

"It's probably going to be chaos,” Angel Sabas said.

Some are worried what a sea of cars on their block will mean for their neighborhood.

"For my mom, for her to go, there's a lot of people, a lot of security, everything is going to be hard for her,” Llamas said.

“She has a doctor's appointment, and she's going to miss the doctor's appointment because she's not going to be able to go out."

"(I'm) kind of worried how I'm going to get home from work,” Christine Galindo said.

"I feel sorry for the people that work at University Medical Center or Texas Tech because this is a normal day for them," Oscar Gomez said.

Other people told us that they must plan accordingly for the president’s rally on Monday.

"It's given people an advanced notice to make adjustments as to do whatever they need to do before they start locking down all of the streets,” Esteban Robledo said.

"We'll see what happens after 3 (o'clock),” Galindo said. “Hopefully, I get sent home."

Others don't think it will be much of an issue at all.

"I feel like it's not going to disturb much. It's going to disturb I-10, mainly,” Aguayo said. “But I feel like they can go through other roads and everything."

"Not a lot of people are around here, so, yeah, it is going to be quite a change,” Andy De La Rosa said.

“But, it'll only be a temporary one."

Many of the people we spoke with were a little upset about the looming traffic and other issues with the president's rally, but they all understood that it must be done to ensure the safety of the president, everyone attending the rally and protestors.
