Thousands across U.S. rally for workers and immigrants

Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Thousands of people from New England to the Midwest to the West Coast chanted, picketed and protested Monday as demonstrations raged against President Donald Trump's immigration policies along with the traditional May Day marching.

Protesters flooded streets in Chicago. At the White House gates, they demanded "Donald Trump has got to go!"

And in Portland, Oregon, police shut down a protest they said had become a riot, as marchers began throwing smoke bombs and other items at officers. At least three people were arrested and police urged the rest of the protesters, who included families, to clear out after they pulled the permit for the march.

In Oakland, California, at least four were arrested after creating a human chain to block a county building where demonstrators demanded that county law enforcement refuse to collaborate with federal immigration agents.

Despite the West Coast clashes, most nationwide protests were peaceful as immigrants, union members and their allies staged a series of strikes, boycotts and marches to highlight the contributions of immigrants in the United States.

"It is sad to see that now being an immigrant is equivalent to almost being a criminal," said Mary Quezada, a North Carolina woman who joined those marching on Washington.
