Hundreds Take to Connecticut Streets for May Day Protest

Meanwhile in Los Angeles, demonstrators gathered at MacArthur Park for a May Day rally in opposition of Trump's immigration crackdown.

Precautions were in place in Seattle, where officials were on the lookout for incendiary devices and gun-carrying protesters after a January shooting outside a political event and an incident during May Day 2016 in which a protester tossed an unlit Molotov cocktail at police. At the White House gates, they demanded "Donald Trump has got to go!" According to Reuters, several thousand also assembled in Washington's Dupont Circle to take part in a rally procession to Lafayette Square, across the street from the White House.

Many immigrants say the demonstrations provide comfort at a time of uncertainty. Police made 25 arrests, including a 14-year-old who was charged with rioting.

Her message to Trump: "Stop bullying immigrants".

With chants of "We are here to stay!" immigrants and labor leaders are marking International Workers' Day with marches and rallies in the Boston area. "He is not the king of the United States", said attendee Oscar Cruz, 58, describing himself as a Mexican immigrant who has lived in the United States for 28 years.

Trump, in his first 100 days, has aggressively pursued immigration enforcement, including executive orders for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border and a ban on travelers from six predominantly Muslim countries. The proposal would restrict state and local law enforcement officers from cooperating with federal immigration enforcement efforts.

Later that month, the administration deported 23-year-old Juan Manuel Montes, who was granted protection under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that was created under Barack Obama.

"Everyone deserves dignity", said Burciaga, whose mother is set to be deported after living in the USA for about 20 years.

Ruiz and Martinez both said they want to bring attention to the issues their community is facing, and by working with the Dream Team, they hope to do something about it.

The week after Trump took office, he signed an executive order that temporarily suspended refugee admissions to the United States and suspended admission for people from seven Muslim-majority countries.

In Portland, Oregon, about 200 people including families with children and dancers in bright, feathered headdresses performing to drums, took part in the protests.

"Things are so screwed up in this country". "I think you're going to see a deepening of relationships that have happened since November".

"Before we were not successful in pulling in other communities to join us", Mujica said.

Groups of Trump supporters, including members and allies of the loose coalition of far-right activists known as the alt-right, have recently become engaged in opposing the "antifa" groups - sometimes violently - and accuse them of trying to block free speech.

In Los Angeles, dozens of pro-Trump protesters stood across from a large crowd of May Day marchers, waving American flags and blasting patriotic songs.

In March, the Trump administration started releasing reports publicly naming counties that refused to honor federal requests to detain people who were suspected of being unauthorized immigrants. "And simply by giving me a ride to school, that's transporting an undocumented immigrant - that's a criminal charge against him", she said.

In Miami, Alberto and Maribel Resendiz closed their juice bar, losing an estimated revenue of $3,000, to join a rally.

The rally coincided with International Worker's Day, a celebration of labourers and the working classes promoted by socialists, communists, anarchists and the international labour movement.
