The Trump Administration's proposed immigration restrictions were met with large protests Saturday, and ended with temporary legal rulings preventing the deportation of those detainees. To continue the fight, there will be two events Sunday to increase awareness of the issues at hand.

Starting at 2pm, multiple groups have organized a demonstration starting in Battery Park in Manhattan and marching north to the offices of Customs and Border Patrol, the federal entity tasked with enforcing the various geographical and religious bans the Trump Administration is attempting to impose. The march is to show solidarity against both the immigration bans and the border wall to stretch across the entire Southern border.

Beginning at 6pm, Congresswoman Yvette Clarke will hold a meeting in Coney Island to educate those interested in how to protect themselves and their families against the proposed immigration ban. These travel restrictions are ever-changing and written with no concept of legality, so it is important for anyone impacted to know their rights and attain legal help as soon as possible, especially given reports of detainees being offered legal documents to sign that could further strip away their rights.
