575 people arrested at a rally protesting the Trump administration's zero-tolerance policy on immigration.
"Zero chance, It will never happen!"
Following widespread criticism for the policy's separation of children from families, President Donald Trumpsigned an executive order June 20 to keep families together. Temperatures are expected to rise into the 90s on Saturday in Washington, D.C., and across the Midwest, so protesters should prepare for the heat.

It is not clear if or when the children already separated will be reunited with their parents.
Saturday's "Rally against Family Separation" begins with a morning march from City Hall to Boston Common, where a large rally will take place. "No family jails", said another.
"Forcibly separating children from their parents is not about 'deterrence, ' or the legal technicalities of law, or illegal immigration, or anything else President Trump has claimed to justify his latest and most odious outrage", the daily wrote. "We need to provide for these children", she said. "Family detention centers have been consistently found unsuitable and injurious for children".
Buzzfeed reported that five immigrant children in federal custody filed a lawsuit Friday against what they called the Trump administration's "cruel policies and practices that unlawfully prolong their detention and delay their reunification with their families".
"That is why I march today, to honor his sacrifice". Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) joined the women on the floor, linking her arms with theirs in solidarity.

Capitol Police arrested almost 600 Women's March protesters who filled the atrium of the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill today in opposition to the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" border enforcement policies.
