JERSEY CITY ANTI-TRUMP TRAVEL BAN RALLY: Over a thousand protesters trooped to Newark Avenue last Monday night, led by Mayor Steven Fulop, City Council President Rolando Lavarro Jr. and other city officials. Fulop told the crowd that “the fight to restrict refugee admissions is personal for him because his mother’s sister and other family members were executed by Nazis during the Holocaust. This nation’s values are not Trump’s values. We are going to resist this every step of the way.”  ([Jersey City] City Hall photo)
