Make the Road New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, and allies to lead major rally and march  outside Trump Hotel to kick off resistance to any attacks on immigrant communities 

NEW YORK (November 11th, 2016) - On Sunday, November 13th, thousands of immigrant New Yorkers and allies will rally and march to send a clear message to Donald Trump: we are here to stay, and we will not let you tear our families apart. The protest is being organized by the immigrant rights organization Make the Road New York and sponsored by dozens of other groups across New York (see full list below). New Yorkers and communities across the country are standing up in resistance to the anti-immigrant agenda that Mr. Trump has pledged to enact as President—which would include stripping DREAMers of protected status from deportations and tearing apart millions of families through mass deportation. At  Sunday’s  protest, immigrant New Yorkers will come together in community and declare their determination to fight for their families throughout the Trump presidency.
