Protesters urge Schumer to expand Supreme Court following immunity ruling for presidents

A day after the Supreme Court’s 6-3 ruling that Donald Trump — and future presidents — are immune from prosecution for any of their official acts in office, activists with Indivisible Brooklyn and Rise and Resist gathered for a rally at Grand Army Plaza, where they called on Sen. Chuck Schumer to expand the Supreme Court.

Initial plans to protest outside the senate majority leader’s home in Park Slope were thwarted by NYPD officers, who barricaded three blocks out from the entrance, forcing protesters to hold the rally outside the barricades.
