FORT LAUDERDALE – On Sunday, June 24, and Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (FL-24), Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22), and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) will join local community and immigration leaders at a rally to oppose President Trump’s inhumane immigration rhetoric and policies.

The rally will take place at the Federal Courthouse, 299 East Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale on Sunday, June 24, 2:00 p.m.

Migrant children have been taken into government custody and are being housed at shelters all around the country while their parents, some of whom traveled to the U.S. to seek asylum legally, are held in federal prisons.

Between May 5 and June 9, 2,342 children were separated from their parents, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

Although President Trump was forced to reverse his policy to separate parents and their children, it is unclear how the families that have already been torn apart will be reunited.
