Mexicans to stage largest protests against Trump and his border wall plan

Russian lawmakers are mounting a fierce defense of President Donald Trump's national security adviser who has resigned, following reports that he has misled White House officials about his contacts with Russia.

The march, which was themed around the idea of unity, included about 20,000 protesters.

Tens of thousands of protesters gathered in more than a dozen cities in Mexico on Sunday to protest against U.S. President Donald Trump.

On the 2016 campaign trail, Trump pledged to deport 2 million to 3 million undocumented immigrants with criminal records. Trump has also pressured US corporations to provide jobs in the United States, not Mexico.

The president also signed an executive order ending the "catch and release" policy, which allowed those who were caught crossing the border illegally to return to Mexico without being detained.
