Immigrant families protest family separation at borders

Posted: Updated:

In cities across the country, thousands are marching to protest the Trump administration's policy of separating children from their parents at the southern border. Last month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a "zero tolerance" policy that includes criminally prosecuting people who cross the border illegally, which is a misdemeanor. The parents are jailed and their children are separated from them. Sessions says this will deter migrants from entering the country. Yesterday's marches took place in more than a dozen states, including Kentucky with many pleading for the government to have compassion and keep children with their parents. Hundreds  --- from infants and toddlers to older children --- have been separated from their mothers and fathers.
