Catholic Day of Action for Immigrant Children Roundup

A few hundred Catholic activists, including dozens of women religious, gathered outside at the foot of the U.S. Capitol July 18 urging politicians to stop its “inhumane treatment” of immigrant children at the border and reminding people of faith to take a stronger stand against current U.S. border policies.

Approximately 70 people were arrested for civil disobedience at the U.S. Capitol. There was significant media coverage of the day. Here is a  fraction of the coverage that featured many of those involved:
