‘Close the camps’ protests held across the country, local spotlight on Senator Thom Tillis’ office

More than 300 demonstrators gathered outside the office of Senator Thom Tillis on Tuesday to protest the Trump administration’s immigration policies and detention of children. Critics spoke out against the inhumane conditions of the camps along the southern border where migrant children are being held away from their families.

Similar demonstrations calling for the camps to be closed were held nationwide Tuesday including in New York, Chicago, and San Francisco.

    Thank you for covering our “Stop The Terror, Close The Camps” event. The news about conditions and treatment of human beings just gets worse and worse. Hurts my heart. The protests give us an outlet help us be a community. And make big statements.
