Protesters gathered to voice concern over Trump’s immigration ban

On Sunday, Jan. 29 crowds gathered in Copley Square in Boston to protest President Trump’s recent executive order barring refugees from entering the United States. People of all ages toted hand-drawn signs, some going so far as to blow up Vice President Mike Pence’s tweet from Dec. 2015 stating that banning Muslims from entering the U.S. is unconstitutional. Signs called for freedom from discrimination as well as acceptance of refugees seeking salvation from oppressive countries. Boston officials spoke to the crowds, including Mayor Marty Walsh, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren and City Councilor and Boston Mayoral candidate Tito Jackson.
