The Children Protesting the Immigration Ban
Donald Trump's executive order last Friday effectively banning immigration and travel from seven majority muslim countries was shocking in its immediate consequences. In its sweeping and vague writing, it kept over 500,000 American residents from returning home and sundered families attempting to reunite. It's an order that deeply disturbs the safety of families and children across the globe. In the guise of good, Trump has endangered children and separated generations. At protests over the weekend, we saw this concern not only in the myriad people and their signs, but also reflected by the faces behind those signs. Never at a demonstration or march had I seen such a diverse array of families. Children met and played, and held signs they helped make or made themselves. This is a photo essay of some of those children.
