As Las Vegas prepares for Wednesday's third and final presidential debate, the Culinary Workers Union is protesting GOP nominee Donald Trump on his own turf by forming a "wall" of taco trucks outside his hotel Tuesday.

"We did not come up with the idea for the wall, Donald Trump came up with building the wall," Yvanna Cancela, political director of the Culinary Workers Union 226, told NBC News.

"We want to show him that walls don't divide us, and rather what he has done is uniting us. And when I say 'us,' I mean it as in every group that Trump has vilified: Muslims, women, immigrants and workers. We are all coming together to make sure that Donald Trump never becomes president."

The protest is a dual reference to Trump's call to build a wall along the border with Mexico to keep out illegal immigrants and to a statement by Latinos for Trump founder Marco Gutierrez if Democrat Hillary Clinton wins, "you're gonna have taco trucks on every corner."

The taco trucks are being used to help register potential Latino voters in Nevada. But they also are aimed at drawing attention to an ongoing labor dispute between the union and Trump International Las Vegas hotel.

"While we will have taco trucks, the reason we are out there is for the last year now Trump has illegally refused to bargain with workers who won a union election at his hotel," the union's Cancela said.
