Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump received more negative reactions from the Latino community on Labor Day as a large group gathered to rally outside the Dallas City Hall.

The event was dubbed "Un Dia Sin Trump" or "A Day Without Trump" coordinated by the Latino group Accion America, says CBS Dallas.

This, says the outlet, is the very first major protest against the GOP candidate held in a U.S. city, occurring less than a week before Trump's scheduled campaign stop at the Metroplex.

According to WFAA, the protesters flaunted anti-Trump posters and banners condemning the real estate magnate's 'racist and hate-filled messages' during the early leg of his campaign.

"He needs to see that we are not all of the same cloth. He needs to understand that we have a voice, and we need to say something," John Maldonado, an Iraq war veteran, told the outlet.

Laborer Miguel Antero even brought his entire family to express their disgruntlement at Trump's statements which include calling Mexicans "criminals" and "rapists"

"My concern is if he is making that kind of comment right now, what [is] it going to be like whenever he [has] power in office?" Antero told the outlet.

His haters continue to express their dislike for the candidate in different ways possible, with some even using the traditional Mexican piñata to do so.

"I think he is becoming more popular as he keeps talking," ABC Party store owner Carlos De Le Fuenta told WFAA, adding that Donald Trump piñatas are "selling like hotcakes."

Trump's platform during his quest to become the leader of the most powerful nation in the world includes major changes relative to the United States' illegal immigration dilemma.

Apparently, the GOP candidate wants to build a wall across the U.S.-Mexico border to keep illegal immigrants from entering the U.S.

Interestingly, the protesters who attended the rally on Monday did not believe that they could change the Trump's opinion via their peaceful protest but instead hope to get the rest of the Latino community to get involved in the political process.

"We will convince our community that it is time to participate and they have to be active they have to be engaged, they have to vote," activist Carlos Quintanilla declared even before the rally started.

These rallies, according to research psychologist Edward Rincon of Rincon & Associates, would act as an important turning point in Trump's candidacy.

"I believe they are going to spell the doom of Donald Trump in the Latino community," he explained.

Despite so much hatred being thrown at him, Trump has recently claimed that Latinos would still love him for bringing back jobs in the U.S.
