Five activists of Mexican descent are suing presidential candidate Donald Trump

Five human rights activists of Mexican descent are suing presidential candidate Donald Trump and his private security detail following an “scuffle” on a Manhattan sidewalk that occurred during a protest outside Trump’s campaign headquarters.

The lawsuit, which names Donald Trump personally, alleges that during a protest on September 3, security for the Trump campaign violently assaulted the group of activists, stole their property and barred them from their right to protest.

According to the suit, Schiller and the four other security guards violently attacked the group while they were demonstrating against Trump’s statements on Mexican immigrants. Security took their signs and told them to leave. One of the demonstrators said that he was punched in the head by Schiller after he tried to get his sign back.

Local TV news station NY1 filmed and broadcast the incident. NY1 video  showed protesters wearing Ku Klux Klan attire and calling Trump a racist.

Lawyers for the five activists say that the Trump campaign violated the law and must be held accountable.
