Tens of thousands of Americans are expected to show up today at over 260 events across the country to protest Donald Trump's illegal fake emergency and his racist border wall.

The protestors will share their vision of an America that welcomes people seeking asylum and stands with immigrant, Muslim, and Black and brown communities. People are ready to demand an end to the fake emergency, the racist wall, and Trump's harmful deportation force.

Most protests are taking place at 12 p.m. local time, and there are protests planned in 47 states. A list of the events along with information for attendees can be found at

A coalition of more than 100 progressive, immigration, civil rights, human rights, and social and racial justice groups are organizing the protests. You can see the full list of partners by clicking here.
