Protestors took to the streets across the country after the Trump administration began separating migrant children from their parents under a zero tolerance policy concerning migrants entering the United States illegally.
Reports of families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border sparked outrage among many activists. More protests and marches are planned throughout the month.
Photos of families separated at the border, video of migrant children kept in caged enclosures and an audio tape of young children crying for their parents fueled outrage against the administration as lawmakers scramble to enact legislation against the zero tolerance measure.
