Besides naming her hawkish record, the event organizers stressed that she called for the deportation of unaccompanied refugee children back to Central America when she was Secretary of State and could easily do the same as president.
In particular, Latino organizations have called Clinton out on her involvement in the 2009 coup in Honduras that has caused an increase in human rights abuses, including the murder of environmental activist Berta Caceres, leading thousands of Hondurans to flee their country.
In a statement, organizers said, "As Secretary of State, Clinton played a major role in destabilizing countries in Central America, such as the U.S. sponsored coup d'etat in Honduras in 2009, generating crisis and violence in that country leading to mass migration of children. Other Central Americans are also migrating to the U.S. due to state-sponsored violence and corruption. In 2014, Clinton supported the deportations of unaccompanied Central American minors arriving at the border as a way to deter further migration, ignoring the structural violence they were fleeing and that she helped create."
While their message largley focused on youth, the organizers made sure to not draw a distinction between "good" and "bad" immigrants, urging protesters to show up with the flag of their movements' home countries rather than the U.S. flag.
Protest organizers noted, "Although some of the people in attendance will undoubtedly be Bernie Sanders supporters, the majority of the organizers are non-partisan."
