There is an emergency rally being held today, Jan. 25, in Washington Square Park, New York City. The rally is being hosted by the Council on American–Islamic Relations in New York.
According to the Facebook event page, organizers said, “The moment we’ve been bracing for is here. Multiple news outlets are reporting that President Trump will sign an executive order today or tomorrow, restricting entry to the U.S. from majority Muslim countries. Another executive order is also expected, attacking our undocumented neighbors with an expanded border wall and an intent to target sanctuary cities like NYC. As a city of immigrants, we cannot stay silent in the face of such hate. We ask you to gather tonight (Wednesday), to show President Trump that all New Yorkers stand with our Muslim and Latino neighbors. Together, we will form a beacon of light against the coming darkness.”
This event is to protest the “Muslim Immigration Ban” executive order that is expected to be signed. Here are some possible points this decision will highlight.
