Donald Trump supporters form 'human wall' along the border of Mexico

After Donald Trump's failure to gain funding to build his wall, dozens of Trump supporters formed a "human wall" along the southern border in an anti-immigration protest over the weekend.

Protestors held hands and chanted "build a wall" as they lined up at the border between Sunland Park New Mexico, and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. 

The protest was an apparent reference to a tweet from Mr Trump on 5th February that said he would "build a Human Wall if necessary."

Many of the protestors wore "Make America Great Again" hats. They stood hand in hand for 45 minutes, in honour of Mr Trump, the 45th US President, reports the Epoch Times.

"We are here to bring attention to the fact that there isn't a wall here" Texas resident Anthony Aguero told Reuters.

 "We have to secure our nation and at the same time we are securing the nation, all of these people will be able to live in peace because of all the drug and human trafficking that passes through here won't happen here."

Chants of "USA! USA! USA!" rang out from those forming the human wall. The protest comes days ahead of Mr Trump's first expected campaign rally of the year. 

The rally will take place in close proximity to the US Mexico border.
