BOSTON (WHDH) - People rallied against the immigration ban in Boston on Saturday.
Hundreds carried signs and spoke out about the president’s recent executive order.
From the debate on sanctuary cities to building a wall, protestors made their voices heard.
This all happened after several executive actions surrounding undocumented immigrants.
The president says they will help protect the American people, including “extreme vetting,” defunding so-called sanctuary cities and building a border wall.
People like Sinthia immigrated to the U.S. as a child.
“They come here to get a little bit of the American dream. They’re willing to work for it,” said Sinthia. “Why aren’t we giving them that chance?”
Among the hundreds, a seemingly lone Trump supporter was in attendance.
“As long as it’s peaceful, no one should have a problem with it,” said Ryan Taylor, a supporter of President Trump.
Despite the protests, after President Trump’s first week of executive actions, supports like Taylor are optimistic.
“I agree with it. I’m a veteran, I fought in Iraq. Something needs to be done,” he said.
