Among the White House actions that are getting the protestors hyped up are the administration plans to build the wall between the US and Mexico border,installing a temporary immigration ban Boosting the number of agents to curve illegal immigration and strip federal funding from sanctuary cities. Some officials in New Mexico , which has the highest percentage of immigrants workers, worried hundreds of kids might stay home.
