Actress America Ferrera on Saturday spoke at the anti-Trump Women's March on Washington, telling the thousands gathered that "the platforms of hate and division assumed power yesterday."

"It has been a heart-raising time to be both a woman and an immigrant in this country," Ferrera told the protesters. "Our dignity, our character, our rights have all been under attack. And the platforms of hate and division assumed power yesterday."

Women marching - in D.C. and at 600 sister marches across the country - are protesting President Donald Trump's social agenda with a simple message - "women's right are human rights."

Ferrera, among several speakers, minced no words.

"But the president is not America. His cabinet is not America. Congress is not America. We are America. And we are here to stay.

"We march today for the moral core of this nation. Against which our new president is waging a war," Ferrera said. "He would like us to forget the words, 'Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.' And instead take up a credo of hate."
