Voices on immigration concerns heard during women's march

The first weekend of President Trump’s administration was not without controversy. Indeed, Americans celebrated their democracy and the peaceful transition from Barack Obama to Donald Trump on Friday. Less than a day later, hundreds of thousands descended on Washington, D.C. to protest and give voice to the frustrations and fears that had been brewing since Trump was elected last November.

Deemed the “Women’s March on Washington” people from across the region and across the country marched on our nation’s capital. It was even estimated by many accounts that more people attended the march in Washington, D.C. than the presidential inauguration; a fact sharply disputed by the president’s press secretary. 

Nevertheless, the district was not the only venue for such a march. “Sister marches” were held throughout the United States, including in New York City, Chicago, Houston, Boston, Seattle, Phoenix and Saint Paul, to name a few. Even in regions where Trump carried the vote, such as Nashville, Tennessee; Lexington, Kentucky, and Juneau, Alaska, people were out in force.

Many in these marches proclaimed to be there to show support for the rights for undocumented immigrants and to make certain that their voices are heard regarding the rollbacks President Trump promised of President Obama’s executive orders; particularly the fate of DACA (deferred action for childhood arrivals) permits.

Because of the uncertainties involved in the future of immigration policy, it is important for people concerned about their legal status to seek the advice of an experienced immigration attorney. In the meantime, we will see if the marches around the nation will lead to meaningful change.
