Today, rallies and actions took place across the nation to protest the horrific conditions migrant children and families are currently facing in immigration detention centers at the border. 

The public outcry comes after the Trump Administration argued that soap and toothbrushes aren’t necessary to meet the basic safety and sanitary standards at the detention centers.  Recent reports also show that migrants are being denied running water and were told to drink water from the toilets. In addition, reports show the Trump Administration is flagrantly violating the law by keeping children in detention well past the legal limit

Americans showed up in full force across the county today to denounce the treatment of families in detention, demand accountability, and to ask the Trump Administration to immediately fix the human rights crisis it created. 

Here are some of the photos from across the nation:
