WASHINGTON (AP) - Several hundred people have marched in Washington to protest President Donald Trump.

After a rally in Dupont Circle on Monday, hundreds of protesters marched down streets of the capital, chanting “Stand up, fight back.”

The DC rally is one of several “Not My President’s Day” protests planned across the country to mark the Presidents Day holiday. Protesters are criticizing Trump’s immigration policies, among other things.

While speakers used a megaphone to address the crowd at Dupont Circle, a pair of Trump supporters drove by on motorcycles. Protesters held signs with sayings like “He is not above the law” and “#45: Mockery Worldwide.”

Mizraim Belman says he is an undocumented immigrant and student at Georgetown University. He told the crowd they cannot let Trump “continue to divide” the country.
