Trump protest in Foley Square: Photos of student rally against travel ban

New York City students abandoned their studies on Tuesday to rally against President Donald Trump’s executive order temporarily banning refugees as well as travelers from seven Muslim-majority nations.

Students walked out of their classes around noon and headed for a rally at Foley Square in downtown Manhattan.

Public Advocate Letitia James spoke to the crowd around 2 p.m., encouraging them to continue to resist Trump’s administration.
