More than a thousand people of various faiths attended the “I Am a Muslim Too” rally Sunday in Times Square.

Russell Simmons headlined a rally Sunday in New York City in support of Muslim Americans and to protest President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.

More than a thousand people of various faiths attended the “I Am a Muslim Too” rally, which was held in Times Square on Sunday and was organized by several groups, including the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding.

The protesters waved American flags, held signs saying “No Muslim Ban,” and chanted “We are One.”

Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio spoke at the peaceful rally, saying “we have to dispel the stereotypes” and that America is “a country founded to protect all faiths and all beliefs.”

Simmons said the Muslim community was being used as a scapegoat, but that “diversity will prevail.”

Trump has initiated a crackdown on illegal immigration. He has also called for a temporary ban on people entering the U.S. from seven Muslim-majority countries.
