Hundreds march in Seattle to protest separation of immigrant families

From Seattle-

Religious leaders Thursday evening said they were tired of having their faith used to justify the separation of migrant families at the southern U.S. border.

Hundreds of people showed up to march from Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral to St. James Cathedral in Seattle to advocate for the families caught up in  President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy, which has separated more than 2,000 children from their parents. Trump signed an executive order Wednesday reversing the family-separation policy, but the administration has not made clear how and whether the children currently detained would be reunited with their families.

“There’s no recourse for how they’re going to be returned to their families,” said Rabbi Daniel Weiner, of Temple De Hirsch Sinai.

Those attending the interfaith event packed Saint Mark’s cathedral with signs denouncing the Trump administration.
