Rallies across the U.S. aimed at reuniting children, families separated at border

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) – Rabbis are leading a movement to raise awareness about the immigrant children being held at the Texas border.

They are organizing rallies across the country.

They started in Ann Arbor, Michigan Sunday night and made their way to Indianapolis on Monday.

They say there are a few hundred kids who were separated from their parents this summer and are still being held as unaccompanied minors.

“At the same time, these kids were headed places, they have numbers and addresses memorized. There are people in the United States who could care for them and we could be finding those people much more quickly than the government currently is,” said Rabbi Josh Whinston.

Earlier this year, a federal court ordered the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to reunite parents and children separated at the border.

The administration says it has been working with advocates to comply with the order for several months.
