Parents with Babies Protest at ICE Field Office

HeadlineJun 22, 2018

Meanwhile, dozens of protesters—including many parents with babies—attempted to occupy the ICE field office in New York on Thursday.

Eliza Summons: “I’m Eliza Summons. And we’re outside the federal building near Foley Square, which is the site of the regional ICE office here in New York. There’s another group of us, of parents and kids, who went in. They’re singing songs inside. They’re presenting demands.”

Protester: “The children that are being kept in cages have no clue what is going on. The least you could do is tell the parents that they will see their kids. They’re probably wasting away in worry. They love their kids, and they want to know it will be OK. We were a safe haven to those in need. But we are no more. I hope that you’ll be a hero, take peaceful action, and love the least of these.”
