Organizers say the protest scheduled for Sunday mid-afternoon in Manhattan is about speaking out against Trump’s support of deportation and other measures.

It’s the latest in days of demonstrations across the country. Other protests are expected Sunday in San Francisco and Philadelphia.

On Saturday, demonstrators gathered in big cities like New York and Los Angeles, as well as in smaller places like Worcester, Massachusetts, and Iowa City, Iowa.

In Los Angeles, an estimated 8,000 people marched Saturday to condemn what they saw as Trump’s hate speech about Muslims, pledge to deport people in the country illegally and crude comments about women.
