An immigrant rights protester was violently removed from a rally for Donald Trump in Florida on Friday.
Trump, who has become infamous for his anti-immigrant comments, was holding his first official event in Florida. Naturally, pro-immigrant groups came to greet him. NBC Miami was the first to report on what happened to Ariel Rojas, who was dragged, kicked and pushed out of the rally while Trump supporters chanted “USA! USA!”
From the NBC report:
Rojas’ group, comprised of eight Florida International University students, each holding up one letter, spelling out the word E-Q-U-A-L-I-T-Y.
Rojas, a senior at FIU, was holding up the letter Q before, he said, the Trump supporters standing in front of him turned around, grabbed their signs, and tore them to pieces.
The rally is the same one that Fusion and its parent company Univision were barred from covering by the Trump campaign.
