Just in time for the third and final presidential debate this Wednesday, taco trucks are circling Trump’s International Hotel in Las Vegas.

Dubbed the “Wall Of Tacos,” the peaceful event was coordinated by the Culinary Union 226, an activist organization that, according to its website, “has improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of Nevada hospitality workers and their families with union wages and benefits.” One of the main talking points for Wednesday’s third and final debate is immigration, a subject that is very important to the Culinary Union.

“We’re reminding Mr. Trump that immigrant workers here and across the country will be watching the debate and voting in November,” Culinary Union’s political director Yvanna Cancela told BuzzFeed.

Accompanying the Culinary Union in its protest are other heavy hitters of the activist world: Latino Victory Project, PLAN Action, Center for Community Change ActionAmerican Bridge, iAmerica Action, and For Our Future.

Also attending the event is Democrat Ruben Kihuen, who is currently running for Congress in Nevada.

In an interview with Buzzfeed, Kihuen explained his participation in the wall of tacos.

We’re protesting Donald Trump’s hotel here in Vegas where a majority of workers voted to unionize, and shamefully Trump has failed to sit down at the table with them. As he has demonized Hispanics, women, veterans, and the disabled, we will send him and those who supported him like my opponent Congressman Cresent Hardy a message that we’re here and we vote.

Taco Trucks have become an unlikely hero of the 2016 election cycle.

When Trump supporter Marco Gutierrez warned that if Mexican immigration went unchecked, our country would be swarmed with taco trucks, social media rushed in to defend the adorable trucks. If you’re curious to see how that all played out, check out mitú’s coverage here.

In case you’re wondering, Gutierrez is aware of the “Wall Of Tacos” protest and even plans on making an appearance.

In the tweet, Gutierrez seems excited by the idea of having a taco truck nearby, which contradicts his previous warning of having taco trucks on every corner.

Like the Culinary Union, the other organizations involved in the “Wall Of Tacos” event are hoping to get their message to the people.

“Everyone coming together,” iAmerica president Rocio Saenz told Buzzfeed, “is really about sending a message that we reject Trump and the politics of hate.”

When asked for comment, Trump’s campaign said, “thanks for setting up shop right outside!”

Marco Rubio Just Called Donald Trump Out On His “Rigged Election” Complaint

Marco Rubio might still support Donald Trump, but not what he is saying.

During the first of two Florida Senate debates, Republican Marco Rubio and Democrat Patrick Murphy took several jabs at each other’s records and personal leanings. But the person taking the most punches was, yep, you guessed it, Donald Trump. Murphy wasted no time calling Rubio out for his sustained support of Trump even after the leaked “Access Hollywood” tapes. Rubio was then left having to explain, very delicately, how he can support Trump for president without defending anything he is saying. But the true moment of clarity came when both candidates were asked about whether or not the election was rigged, as Trump continues to allege. Rubio was quick to call Trump out on his lack of knowledge of the political problem.

This election is not being rigged and I’ll explain to you why it’s not being rigged in Florida,” Rubio said during the debate. “And why I hope he stops saying that; why he should stop saying that. We have 67 counties in this state, each of which conduct their own elections. I promise you there is not a 67-county conspiracy to rig this election.

So there you have it. Not even Marco Rubio believes that this election will be rigged. At least for now. You know how he likes to change his mind on things.
