Thousands in US ready to rally against Trump, for workers

Thousands in US ready to rally against Trump, for workers

Thousands of people turned out in some 200 U.S. cities on Monday to reject the immigration policies of President Donald Trump in huge demonstrations.

In Portland, Oregon, police shut down a protest they said had become a riot as marchers began throwing smoke bombs and other objects at officers.

Police said on Twitter Monday that anarchists destroyed a police vehicle, damaged numerous windows and property, started fires in the streets and attacked police.

Ruiz said the rally was held outside the courthouse, because people of color were being "picked up" by Immigration and Customs Enforcement and deported when they were coming to court for traffic citations. In nearby Oakland, at least four were arrested after demonstrators created a human chain to block a county building, demanding that county law enforcement refuse to collaborate with federal immigration agents.

Tens of thousands of immigrants and their allies are expected to rally Monday in cities such as New York, Chicago, Seattle and Los Angeles.

This large nationwide turnout mirrors greater attitudes in the U.S.

Mahoma Lopez, who arrived from Mexico 20 years ago, said he's fighting for the rights of other immigrants, many of whom are anxious about Trump's policies.

Undocumented immigrants rallied protesters Monday through the bars of a mock jail cell outside the Bernalillo Metropolitan Court House to denounce the "deportation of black and brown bodies". But the widespread protests in the United States were aimed directly at the new Republican president, who has followed aggressive anti-immigrant rhetoric on the campaign trail with aggressive action in the White House. Burciaga says no matter what, immigrants deserve respect from President Donald Trump's administration.

Brenda Enriquez says she's participating in a protest for the first time because "Trump is threatening to kick us out". It will be the second such strike since Trump took office; February 16 was also a "day without immigrants", organized in response to Trump's immigration policies and travel ban. The marches, which took place in the spring and on May 1, are credited with energizing Latino workers and killing the bill, although demonstrators did not achieve their goal of comprehensive immigration reform.

The Second International, a worldwide organization of socialists, anarchists and communists, blamed police for attacking what they insisted was a peaceful protest and proclaimed May Day a date of remembrance for the protesters who were killed.

In the United States, International Workers Day became a rallying cry for the immigrant rights movement in light of the US government's anti-immigrant policies.

The US protests focused on Trump's crackdown on illegal immigration as he presses police agencies around the country to assist federal efforts at rounding up individuals sought for deportation and threatens to withhold federal dollars for cities that do not cooperate, which have been dubbed "sanctuary cities".

Among the protesters are teachers from a Washington, D.C. bilingual school who cancelled their English and Spanish classes to be here.

In Concord, activists have scheduled a May Day rally and march to begin at 4 p.m.at Meadow Homes Park at 1351 Detroit Ave. Demonstrations also were expected in dozens of smaller cities from Ft.

Groups urged immigrant workers to skip work, school and shopping to highlight their impact on the economy.

Workers and members of various trade unions dressed in red take part in a rally on the occasion o.

.

A decade ago, immigration rights marches drew more than a million people and successfully blocked an anti-immigration bill in the U.S. Congress. Protesters are hoping that marches around the country, including NY and Los Angeles, can prove equally successful.
