Tens of thousands of Americans have protested against the immigration policy of President Donald Trump on Saturday in several cities. They demand that the strict rules for illegal immigrants be brought to an end.
Demonstrators walked with signs showing ‘families belong together’. The organisers of the protest estimated that about thirty thousand people participated in one of the demonstrations in Washington.
Trump has been below fire recently because of the immigration policy. The strict rules ensure that illegal immigrants, which according to the president are responsible for the crime, were separated from their children.
Under pressure from this criticism, Trump already put an end to the separation of families earlier this month with a decree. But still, two thousand children are separated from their parents.
Several demonstrations have taken place in the past few weeks. On Friday, according to American media, six hundred people were arrested when a protest got out of hand.
