Latino Groups Plan to March Saturday to Protest Trump

As Donald Trump prepares to walk onto the Saturday Night Live stage, Latino protesters and their allies are readying to march from Trump Tower to SNL's studios to denounce his appearance on the show.

The "Marcha to Stop the Hate", as organizers are calling it and the rally before the show, are being staged by organizers who say they want to demonstrate to SNL's creators and NBC, the network that carries the show, that many Latinos see his appearance as condoning Trump's views, which they label as hate speech and racism. Several of the organizers had a call with the press on Friday.
