Friday's noontime rally on Inauguration Day gets some ink in the LA Times. One of the students interviewed is Jordan Hoiberg of Irvine Valley College and Rebel Girl knows that Red Emma is in one of the photos somewhere. He came home soaked.

UCI marchers protest as Trump begins his presidency

excerpt:
A few hours after Donald Trump was sworn in Friday as the nation’s 45th president, a line of more than 100 UC Irvine faculty members and students took to the campus in pouring rain to demonstrate their opposition to his policies on immigration and other issues and urge other opponents to keep organizing during Trump’s presidency.
Some shouted “Education, not deportation” and held signs reading “Black lives matter” and “Immigrants welcome.”
“We need to show that Trump’s policy on mass deportation [of undocumented immigrants] is not acceptable to our communities,” said Jordan Hoiberg, 22, an Irvine Valley College student who marched at the front of the line.

Trump is going to deport 2-3 million dangerous illegal aliens with felony convictions on the books. How is that anti-education, anti-student? It's not.
