Hundreds of Oklahomans protested the Trump administration's current immigration policy at the Oklahoma State Capitol on Saturday. The Keep Families Together rally was a part of a nationwide Families Belong Together effort demanding more clear policies on family reunification for the thousands of children taken from families at the Texas/Mexico border, the end of family detention centers, and help for the people seeking asylum because their counties are dealing with turmoil and violence.

The protest in Oklahoma was put together by Dream Action Oklahoma and Indivisible Oklahoma, and rally organizers say they wanted to ensure Oklahoma did not remain silent on the issue of immigration and the Trump administration's zero-tolerance policy.

Hundreds of 'Families Belong Together' marches are scheduled across the United States, including in Washington, D.C.

President Donald Trump did sign an executive order last week reversing the Trump administration's policy to take children from their asylum seeking families. In spite of the policy ending, thousands of children remain separated from their families, and the administration has not explained its plan for how to reconnect them.
