I'm Greg milky near here in downtown Cleveland where we are seeing some protests and demonstrations. Unfurled today we're here in the middle of a public park. And right behind me you can actually see. The purpose this protests are calling it wall off trumpet behind me. Clo what is a big clock Khamis comments are represented a wall. People who say they're tied at McDonald's thumbs all they wanted to when of their own to keep Donald Trump. Away from them of the people eleventh and that this won't be the only while we're seeing today we'll see several people dressed in what they call Walt haunt shows forming a human barricade of their own. And actually see if we can. Swing around right here as you see some of the demonstrations are happening today. As you know yeah. Tyson and his unlucky with the and I'm an abcnews.com right now yes that's gonna end women's gym and so let's just get a look at you here. Why are you wearing this is we're calling Walt honest.

Republican Party here any politician including. That lived through this is fed up and walk a very big community. Other. Quote good against each other so I'm here as the board of meat and then American society representing Rockford a thing of the war vets. Hurts me inordinately. So. Behavior that. It's not good. I personally that that it could come here because. One of my son of immigrants left Barrett hit Mexico until Baghdad you have Notre Dame. That my father was an immigrant grandmother and members immigrated from experts say that they're rapists or murderers thieves. Does not so memo but here because I'm a Muslim but we don't drive as saying that they're going to deport. Or even abandon. Feel that below the travel look at that the country or get it Gingrich's think that they're going to.

An immigrant it's not that different from the way it was. Particularly in the in line. Unity and. I think I'm going around you received several veterans here at. Veterans had. Plaques on what what is it about the veterans. Tenements intake from Canadian TV there's a lot of you can stumbles always talks about the best the best events.

And now he's CD's highly of Albany state police many different Indiana. Goes to show you what a variety of law enforcement officials speak out here in Cleveland 500 officers just in the Cleveland area but 2500. Borrowed. From around the country we scenic California Highway Patrol on your views Indiana State troopers. As well if it had seen. Florida as well. And lots of equipment in regards potential riots as well when. Preston acting normally sell eleven they had said that they prepare. For worst case scenarios we haven't seen any civil unrest anything like that yet. This is a mother's generally peaceful that we had seen some technically illegal protest taking taking shape at points during this week not using it. It's roots and conventions and so on. Through its bases so we'll see if that continues and that could have something to do with life is all on. It hasn't won a court hearing different pockets of this where she's been moving around trying to stay in place for too long. Less perhaps some cops pulled him aside until and that they're organizing. Illegal activity. Let's see here I. But the guys let's see you're we have some some supporters actually your life listen to him insane night and is day. Seals yesterday this ultimately. What Lebanese government it. Yeah. Three but we do have Donald top supporters. Around here today and Dunn and pat let me just see it. We can talk to you. She and ask you questions you don't tell you so we're and see if only to help bring me. He's only going around where I see a lot of a lot of different movements thoughts and well you know. When all other high quality job to do it and yeah Angela letter had actually honestly local and state. It is and got to tell of how well in his music. And a lot of people he's here is an independent. People environments. You don't seem like a hateful guy so what's your what you call when somebody says that about it. Republican nominee we'll let me and my personal opinion on it. He says is. People. People don't want to hear. They want to hear what did. So they'll know if closing ultimately. As Danny and a lot of you know get on CNN opinion independently. You find yourself getting into the richest people if you find yourself engaging the people of Buchanan has some violence I have. Drive. The student experiences and really. I'm right. You see and it common refrain we've heard from some supporters throughout their early business and it's easy to health plan is that some things here. So that some of the words to document any race religion tonight he's got what he says. That that Mexico is bringing greatness yeah how do you reconcile some of the some of those. President incendiary word you were excellent that is a little out of it has hired me. He would suddenly got his along the I hear it. I want to happen. The man who. News pilloried. I'm very much you know guys we are semi here ABC news poll. And policy several different take place let's to go where the wall has moved to just elsewhere in this square right now. We will see if we can talk to just a few of the people. This announcement there isn't a lot of us your questions and we're live on ABC digital right now on the Internet. If you like you like this camera set up on. Until its earnings coming. And so what are you doing here let me let's see what you guys unions in. Lots of wants a world we're living. Four that's. The feeling. It was not 300 hotel opening. Similarly the doesn't mean why. Belies the slowest symbolic and doesn't look like you're reading. Like it's anything. Story like battery is there deity trying to divide. No weird we don't believe in and we believe. You'll feel his role. I see several people veterans had several veterans onto already. What are you missed your mind when you don't talk about it in the military. Further. Doing better for veterans. So the best thing you can do for all of that is. Enrollment. Hillary Clinton probably not advocating for anything anytime soon need as a result is a summary you do support the president also. So the real issue we're here for now it is six. And and I don't even more awkward family all you Hillary. Would you come from a yeah. Upstate New York I would thank you very much as we continue to introduce you to some of the voices.

Urlacher conversations that we didn't seem. Around Cleveland. And ends apparently supports Donald Trump. He was saying they disagree with him and saying. Let's pull him up and it's been a whole. It has been a big debate of course about the role of free speech when it comes from the shut down from the wall lost something movements. And of course in this case. These people were holding up their signs this man with that with the white flag jumped in front of them started yelling over the imminent is headed circle and so. A lot of complaints from either side that they're not allowing each other to be heard. Let's take your around here. And as we look at some. Some of the merchandise. On sale.
