Tonight, at the same time President Trump lays out his State of the Union address, a demonstration at Market Square on West 25th is planned to stand up against deportation.

The protest plans to bring light to the Youngstown businessman Amer Adi Othman, who was very recently deported (his relatives will be on hand at the Ohio City event), as well as other families affected by national immigrant policies. 

The rally begins at 5:30 p.m. and includes participation from various community and religious groups. All Northeast Ohioans are invited to attend.
