SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Chanting and waving signs, dozens of protesters gathered outside at each stop, speaking out against the Trump administration and Congressman Katko.

From immigration, to trade and taxes, there were a number of issues mentioned by demonstrators. But, some demonstrators wanted their message to be heard by a larger audience.

"We all need to look at what's happening to this beautiful, wonderful country that we all came to as immigrants for the most part, I know I did in the mid-1800s. So we need to protect the freedoms we have come to be able to just assume, because they're going away day-by-day,” said Stephanie Ladd, a protester.

Politicians joined the protestors in Syracuse.

Katko's opponent, Democrat Dana Balter and Green Party gubernatorial candidate Howie Hawkins both stood with the crowd.
