New York, NY – A massive public protest was organized in New York City on June 20, 2018, in observance of World Refugee Day. Hundreds of New Yorkers from dozens of refugee, immigrant, religious, and community organizations staged a march from Bryant Park and rally in front of the United Nations.

Protesters called attention to the delicate issues by representing refugees excluded by Trump administration with life-size orange rafts symbolizing refugee ocean crossings, large-scale photos of refugees, and by reading of the names of refugees who have died in transit.

In recent days, the Trump Administration policy of separating parents seeking asylum at the southern border from their children and the creation of detention camps for children have sparked widespread outrage.

These policies are the latest in a number of Trump administration moves to slash humanitarian immigration programs, including dropping refugee admissions from 100,000 to 15,000 in 2018, elimination of asylum for domestic violence survivors, and the end of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for hundreds of thousands of immigrants in the U.S.

On the occasion of World Refugee Day, a global observance of refugee issues, New York’s City of Refuge Coalition is mobilizing  to support the continuation and expansion of humanitarian immigration policies and reject the political scapegoating of refugees.
