Protest for National Day of Action Against Family Separation held in Houston

- Thousands met downtown Houston Saturday for the National Day of Action Against Family Separation, Gathering outside of Houston City Hall and yelling the words 'si se puede'.

Many listened to stories of those that came here with their families many years ago. “I immigrated to the United States of America when I was less than one-year-old I have three older sisters and the four of us were undocumented children along with our undocumented parents growing up in America I’m here fighting because human beings are being treated immorally and inhumanely”, says one man that spoke.

Not only did supporters hold posters, but children of all ages participated.

"These people out there and the other countries don’t have that right so I’m here in their place to take their position and let them know that not everyone in America agrees with what has happened and we are going to make sure that their babies get back to where they belong and that they are in their proper hands while they are here”, says Kathy Danas.

Greg Kay, who mentioned he retired from federal government says, “I’m really happy and very proud to be supporting people who are on the side of love compassion and care and respect for one’s neighbor”.
