Trump has attempted to bring fear to millions of people living in America illegally, but protestors are starting to make their voices heard. Dozens of people gathered on Saturday outside the White House to protest Trump’s executive order ramping up immigration enforcement.
The protest came after a week of large-scaled enforcement on immigrants, where hundreds of families were torn apart by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). At least 161 arrests were made in Los Angeles and 200 were made in Atlanta.
Protestors stood outside the White House holding signs that read “here to stay” and “undocumented, unafraid.”

Trump has vowed to deport three million undocumented immigrants with criminal records. But with the recent deportations, it just seems that Trump is just looking to tear families apart.
“Trump’s goal for the next four years will be to expand the term ‘criminals,'” said Ambar Pinto, one of the speakers at the rally. “It’s a duty to resist. It is a duty to be the opposition.”
