Trump protestors: "Marches will continue as long as he's president!"

February 6, 2017

West Palm Beach, Fla. - Thousands of anti-Trump protesters marched on President Donald Trump's private Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., this past weekend as a demonstration against his various policies, including his executive order on immigration.

 

This was one of many such events held across the country this first weekend of February, marking the second consecutive   week of protests since January 27. That's when Trump signed an executive order calling for a 120-day moratorium on admitting any and all refugees, as well as imposing an indefinite ban on refugee entry from Syria.

 

The original order also called for a 90-day ban on citizens entering the U.S. from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

 

Organizers planned the Saturday evening march to coincide with a planned visit by Trump to Mar-A-Lago, where the 60th Annual Red Cross Gala took place.

 

It began across Trump Plaza on S. Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach.  

 

From there, protestors walked south along the Intracoastal Waterway, which separates the lavish Town of Palm Beach from the rest of Palm Beach County.
