Some local immigrant rights groups have gathered in front of NBC's offices in L.A. to protest Donald Trump's appearance on tonight's Saturday Night Live. - They say NBC is a hypocrite for allowing Trump to appear after the network severed ties over The Apprentice and the Miss Universe pageant, a group of about eight showed up yesterday near the entrance of Universal theme park. - It's all about ratings, it's all about the bottom line, and you know, what happened to principle and respect for a hard-working and tax-paying community, like our community? - Juan Jose Gutierrez says if NBC allows Trump to go on tonight, his and other groups will call for a nationwide boycott of the network's advertisers. NBC is yet to comment on the protest.
