California: Faith Leaders Arrested at Gathering to Support Migrants

HeadlineDec 11, 2018

In San Diego, over 30 faith leaders were arrested at the U.S.-Mexico border Monday as they held a gathering in support of Central American migrants, calling for an end to their detention and deportation. The group is also calling on Congress to defund Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection. Some 400 people came out to the demonstration, organized by the American Friends Service Committee. The group had planned to hold a prayer circle at the border wall before they were stopped by police and Border Patrol.
