CLEVELAND â€“ â€œThe walls that they build to keep us apart will never be as strong as the walls in our hearts,â€ activists sang.

Organized by Mijente, a Chicago-based group, the crowd illustrated their solidarity with the undocumented community and inclusion for all by creating several large banners meant to mimic the wall Trump promises to build on the U.S.-Mexico border. Several protesters also linked hands together to form a human fence in an attempt to block Donald Trump from entering the RNC.
PHILADELPHIA â€” As Asian American elected officials and community leaders take the stage here this week at the Democratic National Convention, the formidable presence and political force of Asian American voters on the nationâ€™s electoral decision-making process can no longer be ignored.
