There, too, protesters gathered on his motorcade route, many of them with signs about immigration policy.

"Immigrants are coming here to survive", said Fuensalida.

"Let our children dream".

"Once we got planning, we realized Lafayette Park was the only place that wasn't already permitted", Galland said.

Video captured by CNN showed the dolls stuffed into crates, in what appeared to be a reference to footage that has surfaced in recent weeks of migrants, including children, being held by USA officials in fenced-in areas.

Their chant "Say it loud, say it clear, immigrants are welcome here" echoed through the building, drawing scores of Senate staff to upper mezzanine floors from where they watched the commotion. Her jacket said, "I really don't care, do U?" and it became a rallying cry for protesters Saturday.

Almost 600 protesters were arrested during a clangorous occupation of a US Senate office building in Washington on Thursday, where they decried US President Donald Trump's "zero- tolerance" stance on illegal immigration. "I didn't like the sight or the feeling of families being separated".

One protest sign read, "Compassion not cruelty" while another said simply: "Vote".

Sarah Battles is a young mother and brought her 20-month-old daughter to participate in the Raleigh protest. "They deserve to be held accountable for the atrocities they are committing against our brothers and sisters".

The four cities sought on Friday (June 29) to block a move by the US Justice Department to modify a 1997 settlement on behalf of underage immigrants that prevents the government from locking up children captured crossing the border illegally with their family.

She said organizers have notified police about their plans and expect the rally to remain peaceful. "It's scary. I can't sleep".

"I am afraid that they will take my mom away while she is at work, out driving or at home", she continued. "We just kept hearing over and over again, if it was my child, I would want someone to do something".

"This moment is an inspiring reminder that the majority of this country is appalled at what's being done in our name", said Anna Galland, executive director of, which is co-sponsoring the event. "It is right and wrong".
