Protesters rally at Indiana Statehouse against family separation

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Hundreds of people gathered near the Indiana Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis to protest the detention of immigrant families.

Protesters carried signs saying, "Try to walk in their shoes," ''We are all immigrants" and "Families belong together." Saturday's rally was among hundreds across the U.S. urging the Trump administration to reunite families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Patricia Carlin, a grandmother of nine from Danville, Indiana, said she was protesting to show her solidarity with immigrant families and that their detention has made her angry and afraid.

She says her "heart breaks for them" and that the U.S. "is going to be paying for this injustice."

Anna Skidmore, a mother of one, says she was heartbroken and stunned when she learned that young immigrant children were being taken from their families.
