Trump protesters blocked an Arizona highway preventing supporters from getting to a Trump rally.
Anti-Donald Trump protesters blocked a major highway outside of Phoenix, Arizona Saturday, delaying Trump supporters who were driving to a rally for the presidential hopeful in the state capital.
The protesters, carrying banners that read “Dump Trump” and “Shut Down Trump,” parked their cars and stood in lines across the highway, preventing traffic going towards the rally from moving and forcing police to begin rerouting traffic.
“We don’t want you here in Arizona,” one protester, Salvador Reza, said of Trump. “We don’t want your hate.”

Trump’s rally in Arizona brought particular attention from pro-immigration protesters. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who has endorsed Trump, told Politico last week that he’d be providing security for the event. Arpaio is notoriously anti-immigration — a judge ruled in 2013 that the sheriff racially profiled Hispanics during immigration sweeps. The sheriff’s anti-immigration stance aligns with that of Trump, who has called for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and has compared Mexican immigrants to rapists.
“He’s already talking about building walls, not bridges. In the modern era, that’s not acceptable,” Reza said.
Meanwhile, in New York, hundreds gathered in front of a Trump-owned building in Manhattan to protest against the Republican candidate.

Trump is no stranger to protests at his rallies, and in multiple states, these protests have turned into violent clashes between Trump supporters and Trump protesters. Just a few days ago, Trump protesters marched towards the location of a Trump event in Utah, where several rushed the front door.
