Protesters hit the streets Sunday over the election of Donald Trump, marking the fifth day of demonstrations in cities such as New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, CNN reports.

 

In Manhattan, a group gathered to demonstrate against Trump's immigration policies."The main purpose is to tell Donald Trump he can't just deport 11 million undocumented people," Noelle Yasso said. "They're here to stay and we stand in solidarity with them."


Yasso, who said she was an immigration lawyer, said immigrants are terrified.

 


Protesters are upset about Trump's policies on health care, the environment, LGBT rights and other issues. Some are questioning the legitimacy of Trump's victory over Hillary Clinton by noting that although he took the Electoral College, Clinton won the popular vote.


Over the weekend, Los Angeles saw anti-Trump protests swell to 8,000 people on Saturday. In New York, thousands peacefully marched two miles on Saturday and gathered outside Trump Tower, the President-elect's home in Manhattan, where they chanted "not my president."
