Tacos Trump Hate

Today, a Trump protest was not your typical protest. Protesters built a "wall" made out of taco trucks around Trump's Las Vegas hotel. 
The wall was a pretty strong wall- made out of about 40 taco trucks, signs/posters, and many protesters. The protest was held in Las Vegas; where the population is about one third Hispanic.
The idea was inspired by Trump's call for a wall to be built between the U.S. and Mexico, as well as the Latinos For Trump founder, Marco Gutierrez, saying that taco trucks would be "on every corner," if Trump lost this election.
This rally was organized by the Culinary Union, along with Latino Victory Project, United Here, American Bridge, Center for Community Change Action, For Our Future, PLAN Action and the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles.


  1. Wow! I was not aware that this had happened. The dynamics of protest have really took a new style this election. It is interesting to see how much passion people react to compared of the passion given off by Trump and Hillary. It will be interesting to see more of the outrageous and shocking ways people react as the election pushes forward.

  2. I heard about this protest. I thought it was a really interesting way for the Hispanic community to have their voices heard. During this election we get the chance to hear from government officials and Hillary about the outrageous things Trump says, but it is cool and important to see American people and even the people that are being oppressed standing up for themselves and showing that they deserve to have a say in their own issue. They are not just a debate topic, they are people. Protesting in a way that gets them attention is a good way for them to prove that.
