Immigration rally in N.Y.C. to mark World Refugee Day

Hundreds of New Yorkers from refugee, immigrant, religious and advocacy communities held a march in observance of World Refugee Day. Marchers laid out 85 pairs of shoes to represent 85,000 refugees who were not allowed into the U.S. in 2018, carried orange rafts symbolizing refugee ocean crossings and read the names of refugees who died in transit.
