A Facebook page set up for the San Diego “March of Solidarity with the Refugee Caravan” suggests that more than 500 demonstrators attended the event, which was organized by several groups, including the Migrant and Refugee Solidarity Coalition, People Over Profits San Diego and Unión del Barrio.

“Trump is creating a war-like situation at the border and ramping up hate and fear against our brothers, sisters and siblings in exodus from poverty and violence in Central America,” organizers state on the Facebook page.

“It is critical that we demonstrate the mass sentiment in support for migrants and refugees, and demand the recognition of their legal right to seek asylum,” they say.
