Demonstrators In Cleveland Stage Protest Against Trump On Immigration

CLEVELAND — Protesters launched a demonstration Wednesday outside the entrance to the Quicken Loans Arena, the site of the GOP convention.

A little before noon ET, the protesters were carrying an extended cloth painted like a wall that said “Wall Out Trump” in various places. They chanted “Wall off Trump” against Trump’s anti-immigration proposals.

The protest was swarmed with media, as the demonstrators gathered at East 4th Street, where many media outlets are stationed. It was organized by Mi Jente, a group for young Latinos, a protester told TPM.
