For the fifth straight day, protesters will rally and march against President-elect Donald Trump in Detroit on Sunday.

Protesters will gather at 5 p.m. Sunday at Clark Park, 1130 Clark Park, for a rally dubbed, “Build a Wall Around Trump.”

On Monday, another rally and march is scheduled at Clark Park at 3 p.m. The event, which is being organized by the protest group, By Any Means Necessary, is called, “March & Rally to Stop Trump’s Racist Vision for America.”

At 5 p.m., protesters are meeting in Hamtramck to show solidarity with Muslims. The rally is dubbed, “Extreme Vetting of Trump: We Support Our Muslim Neighbors in Metro Detroit.” The rally will start in front of Detroit Threads, 10238 Joseph Campau Ave.

The past four nights of protests and marches in Detroit have been peaceful, and police have allowed demonstrators to take to the streets. The protests have drawn as many as 400 people.

On Sunday, Trump said he would immediately deport 2 to 3 million undocumented immigrants.

“We’re getting them out of our country,” Trump said in an interview on “60 Minutes.”  “They’re here illegally.”

Sunday’s rally is described as “a peaceful protest on the xenophobic, racist, anti Islamic, sexist agenda that Donald Trump wears proudly.”

Protesters are encouraged to bring signs.

We will cover the events live on Facebook.
