BOSTON (AP) — Thousands of protesters have gathered in Boston to call for an end to President Donald Trump’s order banning travelers from seven Muslim-majority nations.
Demonstrators filled Copley Square in Boston on Sunday afternoon to protest Trump’s order and his pledge to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico.
Protesters carried signs supporting Muslims and other immigrants. One sign held by a young child said: “Don’t Ban My Grandma and Grandpa.”
Another protester took direct aim at Trump with a sign that read: “Your comb-over doesn’t cover your xenophobia.”
Attendees included U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh.
Walsh said in a tweet that the city is standing strong “to support & protect ALL of our people & we will not back down.”
