SEASIDE HEIGHTS-The national MAGA March is coming to Ocean County on March 25th when supporters of President Donald J. Trump hit the boards on the boardwalk in Seaside Heights.
The Seaside Heights march has been designated as the official MAGA March for New Jersey and is part of a national pro Trump effort.
“It is about time we stand up for America. We are marching for our President, Vice President, Military, and First Responders. We are the silent majority and we are ready for a real change,” the organization said on its website. “A change for how our Veterans are treated when the focus seems to be somewhere else.”
Some officials in Seaside Heights are concerned about the possibility of organized counter protests to the event which celebrates the presidency of Donald J. Trump. The borough would be on the hook for additional police presence and it may be necessary to enlist the help of outside agencies, including the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department should the alt-left attempt a disruption of the otherwise peaceful pro-American event.
At least one hotel has publicly offered discounts to those coming to the borough to attend the rally.
In Orange County, California, efforts to block the march led county officials to officially close the Costa Mesa fairgrounds the day of the national march.
The rally will feature several guest speakers, although none have officially been announced.
