Haitians protest Trump, racism

More than 200 Haitians and their supporters marched across the Brooklyn Bridge on April 20 to say NO! to Trump. It was the 28th anniversary of the 60,000-strong march in 1990 that overturned President George H.W. Bush’s racist ban on Haitian blood donations. Many people marched to Times Square and others rallied at City Hall, including a contingent from Boston.

Trump has revoked temporary protected status for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Sudan and spewed racist slurs against Haitians, ­Africans and other immigrants.

People are determined to resist any more Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids. The April 20 march was organized by Haitian Enforcement Against Racism and other organizations.
