An event organizer said at least 20 people are expected to be at the Federal Building in downtown Los Angeles Saturday to stage a counter-protest in response to the “Families Belong Together” rally and march, in which thousands of people opposed to the administration’s border policies are effort are demonstrating.
“I imagine that more people will arrive, since local papers have advertised our counter-protest,” event organizer Arthur Schaper of the group L.A. County For Trump said Saturday morning.
The counter-protest is slated for 12:30 p.m. at the Federal Building, 535 N. Alameda St.
“We have a number of our members in L.A. County for Trump will be broadcasting our counter-protest live on Facebook and YouTube,” Schaper said. “We will also have posters, signs and shirts that commemorate Americans who have been killed by illegal aliens.”
The “Families Belong Together – Freedom for Immigrants March” is underway at Los Angeles City Hall, and is scheduled to end in front of the immigration holding facility on Aliso and Alameda streets.
It is among more than 700 protests planned nationwide Saturday.
