Congressman Jim McGovern is expected to join with immigrant leaders and clergy in Amherst to protest family separation, both at the southern border and through deportation of immigrant parents.
The Worcester Democrat notes there is no law requiring that children be separated from their parents. He says that President Trump's executive order ending the practice just replaces one bad policy with another by holding entire families in prison-like conditions indefinitely.
McGovern and others will speak out at 4:00 p.m. today at the First Church Amherst, United Church of Christ.
