Humboldt County joins in on nationwide protest


Eureka, Ca., (KIEM) In more than 700 cities across the country, people are taking to the streets to protest the separation of migrant children from their parents at the southern border. Nearly two months after the Trump Administration put into action the ‘Zero-Tolerance Policy’ for the United States.

The Humboldt County community also participated in the efforts with a local “Families Belong Together” rally and march to end the separation of families at U.S. Mexico border.

“It is criminal to put children in cages,” said Sylvia DeRooy, protest participant, “and pay a huge amount of money to the cagers.”

Hundreds of Humboldt County citizens were in attendance.
