Haitian, immigrant rights groups march against Trump policies
Some community groups in Brooklyn are turning their outrage into action after President Donald Trump's reported disparaging remarks against Haiti and African nations.
During a heated exchange in the Oval Office attended by government leadership, the president reportedly called those nations "s---holes."
Dozens of immigration activists and advocates were at Grand Army Plaza Friday to protest and march against the administration's policies on immigration.
The marchers will continue along Flatbush Avenue and across the Brooklyn Bridge.
The coalition of groups, which calls itself the 1804 Movement for All Immigrants – named after the year of Haiti's independence from France – says it wants more than just an apology from the White House.
The march's final stop is the Trump Building on Wall Street.
