In a campaign rife with harsh words, one union is taking a stand and fighting Donald Trump’s anti-immigration rhetoric with Mexican culinary deliciousness.

Buzzfeed News reports that The Culinary Union is going forward with a plan to build a wall of taco trucks outside of the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas ahed of Wednesday’s third (and final) presidential debate.

It’s not the first time the union has protested Trump; the group protested Trump hotels before over what it says is unfair labor treatment as well as Trump’s anti-immigration statements.

The union won’t be alone, though. According to Buzzfeed, other organizations like PLAN Action and the Latino Victory Project will join the protest.

Were reminding Mr. Trump that immigrant workers here and across the country will be watching the debate and voting in November,” Yvanna Cancela, the union’s political director, told Buzzfeed.

Mashable has reached out to both the union and the Trump campaign for additional comment.

The protest also has some small roots in anti-immigration comments from pro-Trump supporters. In September, during an appearance on MSNBC, Marco Gutierrez, founder of the group Latinos for Trump, infamously said that if nothing was done about immigration, “you’ll have taco trucks on every corner.”

Trump aide and surrogate A.J. Delgado seemed just fine with the protest.

Wednesday’s debate will be held at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas and begin at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT. Its format will be the same as the first debate.
