Hundreds of thousands of defiant and determined protesters gathered nationwide, their resounding pleas to keep families together echoing from coast to coast.
In major cities and small towns, crowds rallied against President Donald Trump’s immigration policy. Galvanized by images of migrant children separated from their parents at the US southern border, they carried signs, chanted and called for an end to family separations.
They demanded the government quickly reunite families, their calls repeated from Washington to Los Angeles, to Chicago, Atlanta, Milwaukee, San Francisco and beyond.
