HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A group of protesters has decried President Donald Trump’s immigration policies in Connecticut.

An immigrant rights rally took place at West Hartford Center Saturday morning in conjunction with over 700 other rallies around the country.

People say they are concerned with the separation of families and jailing of parents seeking asylum on the U.S.-Mexico border.

There were calls to abolish the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and reunite the over 2,000 children who were separated from parents in May and June.
