Protesters March in Austin to Demand Closure of Border Detention Facilities

Protesters marched on Congress Avenue and gathered in front of the Texas State Capitol building in Austin on July 4 to demand the closure of detention facilities at the US-Mexico border.

The demonstrators chanted β€œclose the camps” and held signs with slogans such as β€œthis is the parade you deserve.” Similar protests took place across the US on Thursday.

In Philadelphia, a Jewish youth group said 36 of its members and supporters were arrested for blocking the city’s Fourth of July parade during a demonstration against US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
