Coast to coast rallies protest Trump’s family separations

Tens of thousands of protesters marched in cities across the United States to demand the Trump administration reverse an immigration crackdown that has separated children from parents at the U.S-Mexico border and led to plans for military-run detention camps.In San Francisco, Minnesota, Chicago and elsewhere, thousands gathered to march or rally at city halls, downtown districts and federal immigration buildings.Hollywood celebrities joined the rally in Los Angeles and politicians took to podiums to tell protesters they stood with them in their opposition to Trump’s immigration policies. Trump says illegal immigration fosters crime and he implemented a “zero tolerance” policy in May to prosecute all immigrants apprehended for entering illegally. That led to the separation of more than 2,000 children from their parents, causing an outcry in June, even from some allies of the Republican president.
