Talk surrounding President Donald Trump banning immigration from several countries with large Islamic populations prompted the Council On American-Islamic Relations to host an emergency rally in Washington Square Park today. Starting at 5 p.m., notable community figures presented speeches under the arch, crowds chanted in unison and press gathered to capture the event. Here is a collection of tweets from the WSN staff in attendance at the rally.

 

Washington Square News will update the story as the rally progresses.
