Councilmember Van Bramer Organizes Protest Against Family Separation

Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer is organizing a rally in Woodside Monday to protest the Trump administration’s separation of immigrant children from their families.

The “March Against Family Separation” will congregate near St. Sebastian’s Roman Catholic Church at 58-02 Roosevelt Ave. at 7 p.m.

The protest aims to condemn the administration’s policy of taking children who illegally cross the border away from their parents. Although the president signed an executive order to end the practice on Wednesday, it is uncertain when and whether the 2,300 children held in detention facilities will be reunited with their parents.
