AM New York reported that there will be several protests to be organized this week in New York City. There are several marches being organized starting Feb 16. The events are being organized by different sectors that are against the Trump Administration.
The events organized go all the way up until May 6 and all of these are for protesting Trump's laws. The last of the list that is to happen in May will be a protest on the border wall. The march has been titled La Marcha de Mayo and will happen in front of the Trump Tower at noon time.
Meanwhile, NBC News reported that the protest that happened in Wisconsin was attended by many. It involved Latinos and other protesters from 12 cities across Wisconsin. Most of these protesters travel by bus just to be a part of the protest.
The protest had been a way for the people to prevent the Milwaukee County Sheriff to crack down undocumented immigrants. The event had been called "Day Without Latinos." The event had been organized by the Hispanic advocacy group Voces de la Frontera. There were 150 businesses in the area that closed their businesses on the day of the protest as a sign of support.
