TacoTruck

Ahead of tonight’s third and final presidential debate, one group is taking a delicious stand against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. The Culinary Union decided to build a wall of taco trucks outside of the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas, just minutes away from the location of the debate.

In an interview with BuzzFeed News, the group explained that they hoped to have at least five taco trucks lined up, in addition to a banner in the style of a wall. “Everyone coming together is really about sending a message that we reject Trump and the politics of hate,” Rocio Saenz, iAmerica president, told BuzzFeed in an interview. The union, along with American Bridge, Latino Victory Project, PLAN Action, iAmerica Action, Center for Community Change Action, For Our Future and immigration advocacy activists, hoped to raise awareness and send a strong message that they will be making their voice heard on Election Day.

Trump’s anti-immigration rhetoric has included having Mexico pay for a wall to be built on the border, in addition to banning Muslims from entering the country. Trump has tweeted a photo of himself eating a taco bowl with the caption, “Happy #CincoDeMayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!” He has also previously stated:

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

A Trump supporter also previously warned of “taco trucks on every corner,” which spurred a social media outpouring of support for that very idea, with the hashtag #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner trending.

According to one reporter’s tweet, Trump was staying in the Las Vegas hotel ahead of the debate.
