On November 17, 2002 Newsday reported that "about 200 people marched yesterday in lower Manhattan against the government's post-Sept. 11 treatment of immigrants, in a short-lived rally that quickly melted in the cold rain. Wearing signs such as 'Stand Against Racial Profiling,' demonstrators sloshed from One Police Plaza about four blocks to the Jacob Javits Federal Plaza, chanting against detentions and deportations. Protesters first targeted Police Plaza, alleging cops racially profile against immigrants from South Asia and the Middle East - a charge officials flatly deny."
