Vancouver residents protest Trump's zero-tolerance immigration policies

Demonstrators protest on 5 June 2018 in Chicago against the Trump administration policy that enables federal agents to separate undocumented migrant children from their parents at the border

Pro-immigrant and other community groups march along downtown Miami streets on Saturday, June 30, 2018 to protest against President Donald Trump and his administration for separating immigrant children from their families as they enter through the Mexico border seeking asylum in the US.

The House nevertheless pressed forward with a vote on the bill that would have funded Trump's border wall, offered young undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship and partially addressed the family-separation crisis at the southwest border.

The mood was similar in NY, where Julia Lam, 58, joined the protest with two friends and their young children in strollers.

Lam is a mother and a retired fashion designer who emigrated from Hong Kong in the 1980s.

Advocates say that even migrants who have already passed their initial asylum screenings are being presented with the form.

"I asked about my son and they wouldn't respond", she wrote.

Lawyer Courtney Malloy, 34, said it was important to show support for immigrants and that administration policies are "not America". "I am an American now and this is not what our country stands for", Sadlej said.

The two Colombian footballers who missed penalties to hand England victory in their World Cup tie have received death threats. However, as England has well known in the past, there is always a flip side to the elation of a penalty kick win.

More than 600 marches could draw hundreds of thousands of people nationwide, from immigrant-friendly cities like Los Angeles and New York City to conservative Appalachia and Wyoming.

"Say it loud, say it clear, refugees are welcome here", they chanted, also declaring a welcome for Muslims. "Abolish ICE", said another sign, reflecting growing calls by activists for abolition of the country's front-line immigration enforcement agency.

In the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez, about 50 activists marched through downtown and travelled on to an global bridge, holding banners against the border wall Trump wants to build and militarization of the areas alongside it.

"I can imagine that the sort of desperation you would feel to see your child would lead you to make decisions about your case that you might not otherwise make", she said.

President Trump is demanding Congress to fix - what he is calling - our insane immigration laws.

Those claims must be first evaluated by the apprehending officer and then taken up by an immigration court, a process that in some cases can take years.

"We're here to say to Trump: End this zero-tolerance policy", Indian American Congresswoman Pramila said at the Washington rally organised by a coalition of organisations formed American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, National Domestic Workers Alliance and Move On.

"Occupy ICE" camps have been set up in several U.S. states.
