President Donald Trump implemented a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to immigration that led to families being detained separately when they entered the country beginning April 6.

More than 700 marches on Saturday drew hundreds of thousands of people across the country, from immigrant-friendly cities like Los Angeles and New York City to conservative Appalachia and Wyoming under the banner Families Belong Together.

In Washington, D.C., another massive crowd gathered in Lafayette Park across from the White House in what was expected to be the largest protest of the day, stretching for hours under a searing sun.

BlueWave NJ is suggesting for those attending the march to consider carpooling to Newark. The Families Belong Together rally was organized to demand reunification and the end of family detention.

Protesters chant slogans outside a Federal court during a demonstration calling for the abolishment of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, and an end to mass incarceration, June 29, 2018, in NY.

The lawmaker was part of a delegation of mayors who had visited the entry point city of Tornillo, Texas last week to call on the Trump administration to reverse its family separation policy.

Migrant crisis: European Union leaders plan secure migrant centres
In a separate incident Friday, Libya's coast guard picked up 345 migrants and sent them to Tripoli. The Italian concern has been to stop migrants from coming to Europe in the first place.

Saturday's protests come after the US Supreme Court on Tuesday handed Trump a major victory by upholding his ban that mostly applied to travellers from five primarily Muslim nations. "We will also have posters, signs and shirts that commemorate Americans who have been killed by illegal aliens".

State Senator Nancy Skinner said the family-separation policy follows in the footsteps of the country's most condemned historical travesties, including slavery, the removal of Native American children and Japanese American internment.

"I care! Do you?" read Joan Culwell's T-shirt as she joined a boisterous rally in Denver.

"Protests are great, but this fight doesn't stop here", said Jama. Many demanded protections for the hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants previously granted temporary relief from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which Trump ended in September 2017.

Other protesters converged on the worldwide bridge that carries traffic between El Paso and Juarez, Mexico. Later, as they passed the Trump International Hotel, protesters booed and chanted "Vote him out".

"If you are pro-family, you can not separate families", Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said to the crowd at Los Angeles City Hall. "We need to provide for these children", she said. He said during his speech that the "zero-tolerance" policy is devastating his family, friends and colleagues. There were also rallies held in Williamstown and Great Barrington and 38 other MA communities.
