Supporters will also march in Saturday’s “Families Belong Together” rally in the Loop." [source: https://chicago.suntimes.com/?post_type=cst_article&p=1197861 ]

"Thousands of demonstrators braved the sweltering heat to make their way downtown Saturday to protest the Trump administration’s immigration policies.

Despite the triple-digit heat index, scores of sweat-drenched protesters filled Daley Plaza by 11 a.m. for the “Families Belong Together” march. Chicago police estimated the crowd at more than 50,000.

Attendees spoke out against the recently rescinded policy of separating migrant family members at the U.S. border with Mexico, and others went a step further and called for the abolition of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE."
