People rally at State Capitol to support immigrants
MADISON - People filled the Capitol Square in Madison for the "Rally in Support of Wisconsin's Immigrant Community."

Immigrants from Honduras, India, Brazil and other countries spoke of what they have overcome to live in America.
Reports from the border accuse the Trump Administration of separating children from their parents and ice raids sweep the country.

The rally also touched on conditions at the border in ICE housing facilities.

"We still have inhumane detention camps that we're operating," State Representative Chris Taylor told the crowd. "We know children continue to be separated from their parents. Every child deserves a safe home to sleep in. Every child should be sleeping in a bed, not on a concrete floor in a cage."

Reports have said people also don't have access to hot meals or basic hygiene.
