Mariachi Band Booted From In Front Of Trump Tower

“We did it for fun, to celebrate this brutal election finally ending," the band's spokeswoman said.

NEW YORK ―  A mariachi band performed outside Trump Tower with a musical protest against the divisive Republican nominee, but was promptly shooed away by police on Tuesday night. 

The ensemble, Mariachi Mixteco, played on as they marched away from Donald Trump’s base in Midtown Manhattan.

Mariela Navarro, a spokeswoman for the band, said they wanted to show Trump supporters that immigrants are here to stay.

“We did it for fun, to celebrate this brutal election finally ending,” Navarro said. “This is a country full of immigrants, and Latinos are a big part of this nation. We’re here, and we’re not going anywhere.”

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
