On February 18th, 2017  thousands of protestors gathered in downtown Los Angeles for a Freedom the People/Immigrants Make America Great rally and march from Pershing Square to City Hall. The day started out overcast and drizzling but the crowds were undeterred and the sun came out mid-morning. The goal of the organizers was to demand that officials declare LA a sanctuary city, provide legal and welfare assistance to immigrants, and refuse to give resources to deportation enforcement.
