PORTLAND, Ore. -- Hundreds of people gathered in Downtown Portland on Monday afternoon for a rally in opposition to President Trump's immigration ban.

The rally, promoted by Unite Oregon in conjunction with at least 11 other agencies, began at noon at Terry Schrunk Plaza between 3rd and 4th Avenue on Southwest Madison. It ended at 1 p.m.

In a news release, Unite Oregon called Trump's executive order "an assault on religious freedom and civil liberties" as well as a "racist and unconstitutional attack on Muslims, immigrants, and refugees."
