Pride and Protest on Display as Mexico City Marches Against Donald Trump

Thousands gathered in Mexico on Sunday in a “Respect for Mexico” march denouncing President Donald Trump’s Mexico agenda and celebrating their Mexican heritage. The peaceful protest, organized by Vibra Mexico, started at the National Auditorium in Mexico City and ended with demonstrators singing the Mexican National Anthem at the Angel of Independence monument. In an executive order signed during the first week of his presidency, in keeping with his repeated statements on Twitter and in speeches, Trump called for “the immediate construction of a physical wall on the southern border.”
