5,000 march Minneapolis streets over Trump immigration ban

A rally that started as 1,000 demonstrators outside the Federal Courts building in Minneapolis quickly turned into a street-closing march of at least 5,000 protesters.

Liz Sawyer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

As the downtown protesters began to march, authorities shut down traffic on 4th Street and along the route, trapping motorists leaving work, to accommodate the group that alternated calls for Trump’s impeachment with chants supportive of refugees who have moved to Minnesota from countries around the world. No arrests were made.
