To close up the day, a group of mariachis placed themselves outside the Trump Tower in New York to remind Trump that Mexico is present in the US.

According to reports, they were there to "serenade" the candidate.

People have identified this group as Mariachi Sol Mixteco.

This is not the only initiative that the Mexican community called for in the city. A Mexican immigrant started a movement to sing goodbye to these elections. His proposal includes a mariachi group of women.
