(Before It's News)

Chicago, IL – Over 4000 people marched today, Feb. 16, in Chicago as part of the Day Without Immigrants mobilizations across the country. The protest was called by ARISE Chicago, whose Jorge Mujica spoke to the crowd at Union Park. He condemned the order from President Trump that allows ICE officers to detain and deport people without trial. Mujica was one of the conveners 11 years ago of the mega-marches in Chicago that attracted hundreds of thousands for immigrant rights.

The march was overwhelmingly Latino, with many Mexican flags. Messages of solidarity from other oppressed nationality movements came from Frank Chapman of the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression and Bassem Kawar, a volunteer with the Arab American Action Network.
