Updated: June 30, 2019 10:38 PM

Demonstrators marched in south Minneapolis Sunday to rally against President Trump's immigration policies Sunday.
The group says it's against the President's threat to deport millions of people and calls his policies "anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim".


Along the route the group yelled "Stand up fight back" and "People united can not be divided." Others called for the abolishment of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE.

The march lasted for a few miles and ended at a church. 

"If we don't show force and show that we won't stand for this, I'm afraid these abuses will continue," Tony Aarts said.

This is certainly an issue that has Americans divided, and the President has many supporters.

An ABC News/Washington post poll from April shows 39% of respondents approve of the President's handling of immigration, up slightly from two years ago.
