LOS ANGELES, California — Mass immigration activists have planned to stage a large protest at a dinner event featuring 2016 presidential contender Donald Trump at the Luxe Hotel on Friday night.

Security has been amplified in preparation after illegal immigration advocacy organizations, such as the Coalition for Humane Immigrants Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA), prepared to picket with signs that read “Dump Mr. Trump” on them.

The I-405 is expected to be clogged with traffic, as it has been during President Barack Obama’s numerous visits to the region.

Breitbart News spoke with the Luxe Hotel and they said they “already have officers on location to make sure everything is safe.” A large police presence is expected. The hotel also said there would be officers posted at all of the hotel’s exits to ensure there are no break-ins and to guarantee the safety of those attending tonight’s event.

The Luxe Hotel is considered private property and any trespassers will either be removed from the location and, possibly arrested.

A slew of street art has hit the area surrounding the Luxe Hotel ahead of Trump’s anticipated visit. Among them is a bench advert which shows a family of five who have arrived in the United Staes illegally running towards the left. The poster reads, “Undocumented Democrats Say Dump Trump.”
