More than 200 people came out Saturday to protest against immigration policies that separate families and confine them to camps, a process the protesters called inhumane and un-American.
Undeterred by the heat, protesters of all ages gathered, as they have previously, on all four corners of the Route 110 and Jericho Turnpike intersection in Huntington Station.
They shouted slogans and cheered passing drivers who honked their horns in support. While a few signs denounced President Trump directly, the majority criticized the policies that have come under renewed scrutiny for the way the detained, especially the children, are treated.
The Families Belong Together rally, part of a national movement, was sponsored by more than 50 immigrant and human rights organizations.
