“Dump Trump!” “Lock him up!” “Impeach, impeach!” “He’s gotta go!”
Motorists were greeted with those chants on the commute at Girard and Central on Tuesday evening. They saw “Baby Trump” balloons, signs reading “No one is above the law!” and “Mob boss” near the University of New Mexico campus in Albuquerque on the eve of an expected U.S. House impeachment vote of President Donald Trump.
“Showing a mass of people and the people’s will on the streets is a good way in moving toward impeachment, conviction and removal,” said Albuquerque resident Ruben Rodriguez, one of about 200 people who converged on all four corners of Central and Girard as part of the “Nobody Is Above the Law” rally calling for Trump’s impeachment. It was one of many similar demonstrations taking place nationwide. There have also been small “Stop the Madness” protests in some New Mexico communities over the past couple of months in support of the president.
