Philadelphia: ‘Keep families together!’

Over 100 people protested outside a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Philadelphia on June 14. Lined up on sidewalks on both sides of the 100 block of 8th Street, participants held signs facing rush-hour traffic as a number of speakers condemned the Trump/Sessions’ racist separation of migrant families.

The protest was part of a national day of such actions held all over the U.S. Organized by Families Belong Together, their webpage explains the reason for the protests: “Trump’s federal agents are taking children, from infants to teens, away from their immigrant parents — tearing apart families and meting out physical and psychological abuse at our border, every day. We demand that Trump keep families together.”
