Families Belong Together March & Local Events, Saturday, June 30

Families Belong Together March & Local Events, Saturday, June 30

Almost 600 protesters were arrested during a clangorous occupation of a US Senate office building in Washington on Thursday, where they decried US President Donald Trump's "zero- tolerance" stance on illegal immigration.

More than 700 planned marches are expected to draw hundreds of thousands of people across the country, from immigrant-friendly cities like Los Angeles and NY to conservative Appalachia and Wyoming under the banner Families Belong Together. "This is absolutely bigger than politics". "It is right and wrong".

A main event in Washington, D.C.is expected to draw tens of thousands of marchers, two days after thousands of women marched to Capitol Hill and almost 600-including Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.)-were arrested for demonstrating in the Hart Senate Office Building.

The marchers protested federal policies including the one that separated children from their families at the U.S. -Mexico border, as well as those that are keeping some families detained.

It's done little to quell public outrage.

The groups planning the so-called Families Belong Together rallies have carefully framed them as peaceful and family-friendly - another draw for those looking to jump into their first protest, Meyer said.

Nevertheless, chanting "We Care" and "Abolish ICE", the protesters demanded Congress act to end Trump's policies regarding unlawful border crossings.

The executive order did not do anything to reunite families already separated by the president's policies. Thousands of people have RSVP'd on Facebook.

Stunning England break ODI record to crush Australia
World champions Australia could only manage 239 for nine in reply as they suffered their 14th defeat in 16 completed ODIs. Australia , however, were gifted a wicket when Roy ran himself out going for a needless second run.

"They have fear", she said. "It's going to work out great".

Wearing stickers that said "Deport Trump", and "F**k Trump" shirts, the protestors chanted slogans like "No ban no wall, America is home to all". Washington, D.C., will play host to the main event, but more than 600 sister marches are also planned.

The police said those arrested were being released after they were processed.

"I think that every American, Republican and Democrat, just has to try and imagine what that looks like, to have a six-month-old baby taken from your breast", she said. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World. About a dozen clergy members were arrested that day outside the federal courthouse at 312 N. Spring St. after refusing to move out of the street when the Los Angeles Police Department declared an unlawful assembly. They were charged with unlawfully demonstrating, a misdemeanor.

Thursday's protesters were joined by others around the country. They dared me to say impeach him.

In our area, a march will take place in Newark, starting at Newark's City Hall at 11 a.m. Protestors are encouraged to wear white in a sign of unity. Overflow space will be cordoned off along 16th Street NW and in Farragut Square, where organizers will set up large screens.

"At this moment, there is actually different momentum around immigration".

But the Trump administration points out that most of those migrants never showed up for court.
