About 100 protesters used the occasion of President’s Day to gather in front of the federal building in Syracuse to speak out against the sitting President. They had a message for President Trump in response to his emergency declaration over a border wall, chanting "no wall," and "fake emergency."

One of the protesters was Central New York Area Labor Federation Vice President Kenneth Greenleaf, who implored the crowd to think of the nation's "real emergencies."

A Syracuse University researcher is trying to take the politics and emotions out of illegal immigration and border security, even with the president's address to the nation Tuesday evening.
