Rep. Yvette Clarke holds town hall meeting

Residents packed an overcrowded town hall meeting at a Jewish temple in Prospect Park with Rep. Yvette Clarke Wednesday to discuss President Donald Trump's first month in office.



Organizers say they had an overflow of about 300 people.



Residents booed as Clarke outlined some of the president's controversial new policies on immigration, the environment and health care.



She brought a panel of experts with her to help answer questions from concerned constituents.



Many of the questions focused on immigrant, and ACLU lawyers said anyone who is stopped and asked to show identification has the right to ask why.
