MORRISTOWN - Hundreds of people hit the streets of Morristown Saturday afternoon for a pro-immigration and refugee rally.  

The theme of the march was "No Hate, No Fear: Immigrants And Refugees Are Welcome Here Rally."

People of all ages and races marched through the chilly and wet streets of Morristown. The march started at Margaret's Church on Sussex Avenue, then made its way around Speedwell Avenue toward the green with a stop for speeches at the Morristown Town Hall.

One of the event's organizers said that participants were simply marching for immigration rights and diversity.

The march was met with dissent from one protester, but overall it remained peaceful throughout the afternoon.

The march comes after the circulation of a fake photo that claimed to depict border patrol agents in Morristown.
