NEW YORK (AP) - Crowds of people filled a New York City park to rally against President Donald Trump’s executive orders on the building of a U.S.-Mexico border wall and another upcoming one expected to halt refugees and people from certain countries from coming to America.

Protesters chanted “Resist” and “No ban, no wall, this is our New York” as they stood in Washington Square Park on Wednesday night, listening to elected officials, advocates and other speakers. People carried signs saying “I stand with immigrant New York” and “Here to stay”

Aside with the executive order on the border wall, Trump signed another that would cut federal funding to “sanctuary cities” like New York that don’t cooperate with federal immigration officials any more than is absolutely necessary.
