Published on Wednesday, July 3, 2019 | 5:54 am


About 100 demonstrators protested against child migrant detention centers along the U.S. border with Mexico in a “Close the Camps” action held on South Lake Avenue midday Tuesday.

Later members of the group met with Congresswoman Judy Chu at her nearby Pasadena office.

The protest was part of a series of actions nationwide.

Rally participants held signs and letters to present to Chu calling on Congress to close the camps, refuse to authorize any more funding for family detention and deportation, and visit detention camps to bear witness to the atrocities being committed.
