WATCH: Thousands of New Yorkers take streets after Trump signs orders against immigrants, Muslims
President Donald Trump signed executive orders on Wednesday banning travel and immigration from six Muslim countries, including Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, Iraq, and Iran. He signed another order on Wednesday to start the construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, which was central to his campaign platform.
The president also threatened to cut off federal aid to cities that have vowed to serve as sanctuaries for undocumented immigrants, including Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York as part of his anti-immigrant agenda.
With just the morning’s notice, thousands of New Yorkers took to the streets on Wednesday evening to send a message to the president that they will not stand for his rhetoric and will fight for Muslims and undocumented immigrants. The city organized an emergency action on Tuesday night as well, after the president signed executive orders to continue the construction of the Dakota Access and Keystone XL Pipelines.
