(Before It's News)

Minneapolis, MN – More than 400 people marched in Minneapolis, Nov. 23, to protest President-elect Donald Trump’s plans to attack immigrants. Lake Street, the march route, rang with chants of, “No Trump, no KKK, no racist USA,” “Build bridges, not walls” and “Trump eschucha, estamos en la lucha!”

The site of the protest, south Minneapolis, is largely populated by new immigrants from Latin America and Somali refugees. People jumped out of their cars to chant along or honked their horns in support.

The protest was sponsored by the Minnesota Immigrant Rights Action Committee (MIRAC), an immigrant rights organization in Minnesota. The march demanded, “Hands off DACA!” “Stop immigration raids and deportations!” “No border wall” “No anti-Muslim bigotry!”

Giselda Gutierrez of MIRAC said, “We had a great a event, a lot of people came out, we are going to have to sustain that kind of energy going into Jan. 20 and beyond. When we’re united and out on the street we can win just like we won in 2006 with a very Republican administration. We need to harness all our energy and now is not the time to be silent, now is the time to fight, now is the time to organize. I hope we have a huge turnout for Jan. 20 so that we can show everybody that we are not going to accept this as our new normal. On Jan. 20. ‘No Work, No School, No Business as Usual!’”
