Protesters Hit The Streets Over U.S. Migrant Separation Policy

“When people come into our Country illegally, we must IMMEDIATELY escort them back out without going through years of legal maneuvering. Our laws are the dumbest anywhere in the world. Republicans want Strong Borders and no Crime. Dems want Open Borders and are weak on Crime!” — that’s the message the President greeted protestors with as he doubled down on his policy amidst the protest of tens of thousands of people who took to the street nationwide to voice their objection to the President administration’s strict migrant policy.

Overall, protesters could be seen with placards and signs of all sizes with writing such as:

“Stand with immigrants! Say no to racism!”

“End Family detention!”

“We are all immigrants.”

“Seeking safety is not a crime.”

“Let our children dream. Let them go!”

Organizers and protesters called on the Trump’s administration to:

  • reunite separated migrant families immediately.
  • end family detentions.
  • abandon the zero-tolerance policy.

Some 2,000 children remain separated from their parents, despite President Donald Trump’s executive order ending the controversial policy.

Recently the President yielded to public pressure after weeks of domestic and international outrage.

He issued a new order to prevent children from being taken from parents who face criminal prosecution as part of his “zero tolerance” towards illegal crossings of the US border from Mexico.

Faced with a backlash, President Trump instead promised to “keep families together” in migrant detention centers.
