Protestors Rally Against President Trump

Trump Protestors

September 20, 2019 – President Donald Trump’s Rio Rancho rally was also met by plenty of protests this week. The NMiF team caught up with some of the people who braved the pro-Trump crowds at the Santa Ana Star Center to find out what motivated them to protest. Just about an hour before, the state Democratic Party held a counter-rally at Tiguex Park in downtown Albuquerque, featuring Congressman Ben Ray Lujan, Congresswoman Deb Haaland, Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver and Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller.
