Texas: Thousands Rally to Protest Trump’s Crackdown on Immigrants

HeadlineApr 10, 2017

In Texas, thousands of people rallied in downtown Dallas on Sunday to protest President Trump’s plans for mass deportations, as well as his failed attempts to ban refugees and people from some majority-Muslim nations from entering the United States. This is civil rights activist Martin Luther King III, speaking at the rally.

Martin Luther King III: “What is important about this demonstration, in my judgment, is it’s Christians, it’s Muslims, it’s Jews, it’s Hindus, it’s people who may not have a belief, but the fact that people, Americans, are coming together saying we, as America, can and must do better.”
