Tens of Thousands Protest Trump’s Election Victory

Tens of Thousands  Protest Trump’s Election Victory

WASHINGTON - Immigrants and their advocates added their voices on Sunday to those who have been marching and protesting Donald Trump’s presidential win.
Organizers said the protest in Manhattan was about speaking out against Trump’s support of deportation and other measures. Demonstrators carried signs in English and Spanish saying things like “Hate won’t make us great,” and chanted, “We are here to stay.”
It was the latest in days of demonstrations across the country. Other protests were expected Sunday in San Francisco, St. Louis Philadelphia, Denver and more. On Saturday, demonstrators gathered in big cities like New York and Los Angeles, as well as in smaller places like Worcester, Massachusetts, and Iowa City, Iowa.
In Los Angeles, an estimated 8,000 people marched Saturday to condemn what they saw as Trump’s hate speech about Muslims, pledge to deport people in the country illegally and crude comments about women.
Protests also were held in Detroit, Minneapolis and others. More than 200 people, carrying signs, gathered on the steps of the Washington state Capitol. The group chanted “not my president” and “no Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA.” (AP)
