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 “close the camps” and held signs with slogans such as “this 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).
