Chico March Against Trump’s Zero Tolerance Policy

More  than 100 people showed up for the protest on a hot sunny day in Chico.  Many people loudly chanted “ families belong together”, as part of a nationwide protest against Trump’s zero tolerance policy.  Also “ Love and respect” was another chant heard throughout the town.  The protest was to show solidarity with some 700 other protests going on in United States and abroad.  The policies of the Trump republicans to separate children from their family has caused the great upheaval even evangelist clergy like Franklin Graham has spoken out against  Trump administration’s policies policy.

Because of the Trump policies more then two thousand children have been separated from their families.  There has also been a court filing requiring the Trump Republicans  to stop separating children from their families and to return the children to their rightful families.  The Trump administration has said they will unite all children with their families, however, there is no guarantee that all family members can be found as some may have already been deported.
