Border Network For Human Rights Marches Against President Trump’s Immigration Policy [VIDEO]
After a protest led by Congressman Beto O'Rourke this weekend, more protests will be taking place this week against President Trump's "zero tolerance policy" on immigration.
The marchers met up in front of Burges High School earlier Tuesday morning and began their march a short time later to the El Paso Processing Center at 8915 Montana Avenue. According to KVIA, the group says they are protesting the "mass incarceration of immigrant families seeking asylum and refuge in the United states, and the abhorrent proposal to incarcerate migrant children separated from their parents and families on military bases."
O'Rourke and others are angry at the Trump administration's sudden shift in policy of bringing criminal charges against any adult caught crossing the border illegally. Previous administrations had referred those with families to immigration courts instead of bringing criminal charges against them.
Trump has said that if Democrats would come to the table about his border wall and immigration reform, a deal could be struck that would be good for the children, good for the country, good for the world."
