Protesters march against Trump’s immigration policy

Local News

The outrage over the Trump Administration’s zero tolerance immigration policy has lead to a day of protest.

More than 700 planned marches are taking place, drawing in hundreds of thousands of people.

In Sioux City about 200 Protestors marched through downtown streets, carrying signs urging the government to reunite families separated at the at the U.S. – Mexico border. We spoke with protestor Tereasa Wolff,  who says she’s marching for a young man that she was unable to protect from being deported.

“And these people are willing to just really work hard to provide for their family and that’s important and that is what America was founded on, that’s what my grandfather did, so how can we think its wrong. This young man worked for years, we tried to help him get his immigration papers,” says Wolff.

These protests come even after a federal judge issued a nationwide ruling, ordering that families with children under 5 be reunited within 14 days and families with older children within 30 days.
