UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) - Some students at John Carroll University spent Tuesday night outside after heated protests over a "mock border" display.

The Latin American Student Association said the display was put up on a fence to educate others on immigration.

Some students tried to vandalize the display, according to the student newspaper, The Carroll News.

Students said the wall was not erected in protest of the presidential hopeful, Donald Trump but to provide information about current immigration policies and the surrounding debates.

Trump has proposed building a wall along the U.S.- Mexico border as a solution to illegal immigration.
