Jewish rally for refugees held in Battery Park: See photos

Demonstrators gathered in Battery Park Sunday morning to show their support for refugees.

Organized by the Jewish nonprofit HIAS, the rally was meant to show opposition to President Donald Trump’s suspension of the U.S. refugee program. Although the executive order barring refugees was blocked, Trump has indicated he will write another order about immigration.

Mayor Bill de Blasio and other city officials spoke out in support of the rally.
