Protesters demonstrated at the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Rossmore Avenue on Monday to raise awareness about immigrant rights and to voice opposition to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton . Clinton attended a private fundraiser in Hancock Park on Monday evening. The demonstration was organized by Union Del Barrio, an independent political organization supporting the Latino community. The approximately 50 demonstrators carried the flags of Central American countries and signs that read, “Stop Border Militarization” and “Central American Asylum Seekers are Refugees.” They denounced Clinton for what organizers said is her support for the deportation of Central American immigrants.
“We are out here to educate the community about the truth about Hillary Clinton. She has called for the deportation of immigrant youth without family here,” said Ron Gochez, an organizer with Union Del Barrio. “Trump is bad, but Hillary is worse. We will oppose Trump and Hillary Clinton and anyone who does not support our community.”
