Another Day, Another Local Rally Against Trump’s Immigration Order

The group Indivisible KY held a rally on Tuesday in front of the Gene Snyder Federal Building in downtown Louisville. The focus of the rally was Kentucky’s senior Senator Mitch McConnell.

Indvisible KY, a new statewide activist organization, complained that McConnell refused to listen to those urging Congress to “stop the ban on Muslim refugees entering the U.S. and to stop the planning of the construction of a wall on the Mexico border.”

An estimated 250 participants attended the event, many holding telephones and signs asking McConnell to call them, a reference to the senator’s lack of communication with constituents about his stance on the executive orders signed by President Donald Trump over the past week.

It was the city’s third straight day of pro-immigration rallies.
