Marches are underway across cities in the U.S. to protest the Trump administration's immigration policies. Hundreds of thousands of protesters could attend more than 700 marches in cities from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C., and New York City.
Dozens of progressive groups planned the "Families Belong Together" protests on Saturday including the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Move On and the Women's March. They are demanding the Trump administration end family separations, end family detentions and reverse its "zero tolerance" policy.
The Department of Health and Human Services has said it is holding more than 2,000 "unaccompanied" children. Earlier this week, 17 states and Washington D.C. sued to force the Trump administration to reunite immigrant families.
"You have people fleeing persecution and violence, put into military bases as if they're Osama Bin Laden or something," said Faiz Shakir, the national political director at ACLU.
