Hundreds of US protesters have taken to the streets of New York City to express their resentment against President Donald Trump’s controversial immigration policies.
The protesters chanted slogans against Trump’s revised travel ban targeting citizens of six Muslim-majority countries as well as the planned construction of a wall on the US-Mexico border.
The protest is part of Faith Over Fear Week of Action & Resistance “to challenge unjust policies and practices that create a culture of fear in NYC.”
The protesters marched from Washington Square Park in Lower Manhattan to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services office.
Since taking the oval office in January the 20th, the former real estate mogul’s policies has triggered massive protests both inside the US and abroad.
On Wednesday, a federal judge in the state of Hawaii halted Trump’s revised travel ban hours before it was due to come into effect, ruling that it was unconstitutional.
