Protesters in Grand Junction want immigrant children reunited with families

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- More than a hundred people hit downtown Grand Junction Saturday to protest the separation of immigrant families.

Protestors made an emotional plea for children at the border to be reunited with their families.

It was part of the Trump administration’s "zero tolerance" immigration policy -- this left more than 2,000 children separated from their parents at the southern border.

This comes after the president did sign an executive order earlier this month to end the policy of separating the families.

"So moving forward that's a great policy, but what are we going to do about the 2,047 kids still separated and how are we going to get them together. So we need to keep the voice up and keep families together and process them in the right way, and if they've been separated; how do we find them and get them back together," said Michael Lambert, protester.

Rallies like this one were held all over the nation as well, in cities like Denver, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles.
