    Protesters arrive before Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for a meeting with House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis., Thursday, May 12, 2016, at the Republican National Committee Headquarters on Capitol Hill in Washington.

    Immigration activists protested the meeting between presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and GOP officials on Capitol Hill Thursday, NBC News reported. 

    The activists carried a coffin symbolizing the death of the party. But they also presented taco salads bought at a U.S. Senate cafeteria to GOP Senate members.

    The salads mocked Donald Trump’s “taco bowl” tweet from May 5. Trump tweeted a photo of himself in front of a taco bowl with the comment “I love Hispanics” on Cinco de Mayo. 

    The protesters followed with a stop at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office and distributed the taco bowls to about a dozen GOP House and Senate members who are supporting Trump.
