‘Families Belong Together’ Protests: What You Need To Know For June 30
On June 30, 2018, “Families Belong Together” protests will simultaneously occur all throughout the United States. The protests are in response to Donald Trump’s zero-tolerance immigration policy that is ripping children away from their parents — sometimes never to be seen again.
With more than 2,000 immigrant children already separated from their parents while being forced to live inside of internment camps, now is the perfect time to get out and allow your voice to be heard.
Trump signed an executive order on June 20 which promised to end the family-separation policy but the President has made no effort to reunite most of teh children who were already transported to detention centers all throughout the USA, sometimes thousands of miles away from where they were detained.
Protests To Stop The Madness.
Events are occurring throughout the United States and at locations around the world. In total, 628 protests are planned and hundreds of thousands of people are expected to attend.
The protests have been organized by various organizations included the ACLU, the Women’s March, MoveOn, and others.
To spread the message users on Twitter have been using the #FamiliesBelongTogether hashtag to spread the word about events occurring in **ALL 50 STATES** (See Below):

Ruling Against Family Separation
There is some positive news that has arisen ahead of the marches. A Federal judge has ruled against the family separation policy.
California US District Court Judge Dana Sabraw ordered that all minor children currently being detained without parental supervision be returned to their parents care. Absent a determination the parent is unfit or the parent declines reunification, all minor children who are under the age of 5 must be reunited within 14 days and all children age 5 and older must be reunited within 30 days.
