Tens of thousands of people in hundreds of cities took to the streets of America on Saturday, participating in the Families Belong Together protests that are shining a light on Donald Trump’s immigration policies that caused children to be separated from their parents at the borders.
About 30,000 people protested in Washington, according to Vox, and there were reportedly similar protests and marches in about 700 other cities throughout the country.
Here are some of the best photos we saw from the protests.

About 100 years ago, my ancestors, refugees seeking asylum, put down roots just a few blocks from this spot. I'm marching today to make sure others can do the same. #FamiliesBelongTogether pic.twitter.com/Ye1VqgYVh1
