Donald Trump has been sworn in as the country’s 45th president.
“Communities from across the city will take The People’s Oath to defend each other against the devastating polices of the Trump Administration, and to work together for positive changes,” reads a statement from the New Sanctuary Movement, the immigrant advocacy group that is leading the charge on the ceremony, dubbed “The People’s Inauguration.”
