Protesters fill Copley Square to rally against Trump’s immigration order

Demonstrators filled Copley Square in Boston Sunday afternoon to protest against President Trump’s immigration order. The rally came hours after federal judges issued temporary restraining orders against the executive action and as refugees and permanent residents have faced detentions at airports around the nation. Sisters Tess Browne, Ann Whittaker, and Anne Marie O’Shea were among them.

“Dear Friends, the divided and the unorganized have been brought together. We organize. We resist. In the photo, I am with Najzish and Megan, in front of the Boston State House. Thousands from all over Massachusetts just marched from Copley Square. Last night and again going on today, protesting crowds and lawyers at major airports, including Boston Logan, where two UMass professors were detained. People at Church today spoke of being there last night. We pray for one another and for our world.” — Sister Tess
