“No one is illegal” was the message activists had for holiday revelers at Atlanta’s annual tree-lighting ceremony.

The 56-foot tall tree atop the Macy’s Men’s store in Atlanta was lit with thousands of LED lights Sunday night as part of a holiday tradition. But in the middle of the lighting, activists from the Black Lives Matter movement and immigrant rights groups attempted to redirect the light away from the ceremony.
