The protesters in New Mexico were thugs who were flying the Mexican flag. The rally inside was big and beautiful, but outside, criminals!

The Hill reports:
Protests outside Trump’s event at a convention center in Albuquerque on Tuesday night grew violent, with protesters storming a police barricade and police firing smoke at crowds.
Police said rocks and bottles were thrown at them.
Video also showed some protesters waving Mexican flags.
Trump was interrupted several times during the rally by protesters inside the convention center as well, which he brushed off, telling one protester, “Go home to mommy,” and saying of another, “How old is this kid? … Still wearing diapers.”
Police said on Twitter that at least one person was arrested and several officers suffered injuries after being hit by rocks.
