Protesters on Saturday blocked the roads leading to a Donald Trump rally in Fountain Hills, Arizona. Some of the demonstrators had tied themselves to their cars, making it harder for law enforcement to tow the vehicles. Tomas Robles, executive director of Living United for Change in Arizona, a workers’ rights organization, told HuffPost that law enforcement was cooperative and treated protesters fairly. He said some Trump supporters “did try to get get aggressive,” but they were not violent. “It was a peaceful protest, we got our point across, and we showed the nation and our state that just because Arizona at a time has been seen as anti-immigrant and somewhat racist, this is not that state anymore,” he said. “We’re not going to allow people like Trump to spew that rhetoric.”
