Overnight Immigration Protest Continues at Downtown Detention Center

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Dozens of demonstrators remained overnight as protests continue against the Trump Administration's use of federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to separate immigrant families who entered the country illegally or are legally seeking asylum.

The overnight rally was a continuation of an earlier march where protesters made their way onto the loading dock area of the center before police pushed them back to the street, according to media reports.

No arrests were reported and demonstrators told reporters they planned to stay through the weekend on the street in front of the detention center.

“We continue to put pressure on the administration,” organizer Carlos Marroquin told ABC7. “We want to have just and fair immigration policies, and I think this is the time.”

Although President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday reversing the family separations, government officials said only about 500 of the roughly 2,3000 children taken from their parents have been reunited with relatives.
