The progressive McCarty Memorial Christian Church of Los Angeles advertized a "sanctuary city" TOWN HALL to the public. SEE THE FLYER BELOW. The town hall was to inform illegals about their rights. The event sponsor was the ACLU PEOPLE POWER.org as well as ICE out of L.A., National Day Labor Organizing Network, LA Street Vendor Coalition and other pro illegal groups.
A group of Trump Supporters, who had signed up online to attend the town hall, were singled out. Even though the reverend of the church, Edward L. Anderson, http://www.mccartychurch.org/new-index/#our-pastormet with the group several times during their attempt to enter the meeting and stated that they would be allowed to attend the town hall, ultimately, police were called on scene and the Trump Supporters were eventually "pushed out" of the church by the police. 3 of the Trump Supporters were handcuffed in their attempt to attend the town hall for illegal aliens.
VIDEOCitizen HANDCUFFED, at 3:18 in the video, who attempted to enter the town hall. (Reverend Edward L. Anderson multiple times stated that the Trump Supporters would be allowed to attend the town hall.) However, police were on scene and declared the public meeting, per the pastor, had been proclaimed a private meeting and they "pushed" back on the citizens in order to remove them from the building. There were 2 Trump Supporters that were inside of the town hall. Eventually, both were led out of the church in handcuffs. There were no arrests.
