An estimated 20,000 in Mexico City, Mexico, banded together to protest America’s President Donald Trump, waving signs and banners and screaming slogans and mantras decrying a border wall and supporting migrants.

An estimated 20,000 Mexico City protesters took to the streets of the Mexico capital city to protest America;s President Donald Trump, whom they see as stripping them of their self-respect.

The crowd also burned an effigy of Trump, saying the U.S. leader was destroying a long-lived friendship between the two countries with his border crackdown policies.

From Fox News:

“Many of the marchers were dressed in white as a sign of unity. One of the banners read: ‘Gracias, Trump, for unifying Mexico!’

“The marchers protested Trump’s plans for a border wall and increased deportations of migrants. Trump has also pressured U.S. corporations to provide jobs in the United States, not Mexico.

“The Los Angeles Times reported that one sign read: ‘Trump, pay for your own wall!’

“Maria Garcia, a former Chicago resident, carried a papier-mache effigy of Trump and told the LA Times that the march wasn’t about Americans – it was ‘about Trump.’

“‘The United States and Mexico are natural friends and allies, but Trump is destroying this,’ Garcia said. She later burned the Trump effigy.

“Paulina Ortega carried a placard in English proclaiming: ‘We love Americans, we hate racism.’

“‘This is a march for dignity,’ she said.

“The march also featured many signs supporting Mexican migrants living in the United States.

“‘We want demonstrate to all of those who suffer discrimination in the United States that we are with them,’ said Ana Fernanda Islas, a university student.”

The Daily Mail reported other smaller-sized protest gatherings went forward in other cities in Mexico at the same time.
