Border Declaration Protesters Arrested at NYC Trump Hotel
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Some people have been arrested while protesting President Donald Trump's national emergency declaration outside a New York City hotel that bears his name.
The NYPD wasn't immediately able to say how many people were taken into custody Friday night outside the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Manhattan, AP reported.
Video shows protesters going peacefully with their hands zip-tied behind their backs as officers lead them to police vans. They'll likely be charged with disorderly conduct and blocking traffic.
Trump declared a national emergency at the US-Mexico border on Friday in a move to secure more money for his long-promised wall.
Protesters outside the Columbus Circle hotel held signs with slogans such as "Abolish I.C.E." and 'Trump Is the Emergency."
Trump developed the 44-story hotel, but it is owned by other investors.
