A dancing giant Trump puppet joined the crowd at the “Here to Stay” rally on Saturday at the Connecticut State Capitol. In what seems like an unrelenting series of protests, this latest was organized by 32BJ SEIU to “defend the rights of Connecticut immigrants, and celebrate the richness of our diverse state.”
