BUFFALO, N.Y. -- A crowd of about 2,000 gathered at a rally to show solidarity with refugee, immigrant, and Muslim communities Sunday in Buffalo.

The rally kicked off at 1 p.m. and ran until about 3 p.m. at Columbus Park West, located at Niagara Street and Porter Ave.

The rally comes after President Donald Trump issued a controversial order barring citizens from seven predominately Muslim countries from entering the U.S., and temporarily banning refugees.

Friday, a judge in Washington state blocked Trump's Jan. 27 order and Saturday, a U.S. appeals court denied a request from the Trump administration to immediately restore the order.
