It's a day of protests and prayers in downtown Los Angeles.
Demonstrators rallied with CHIRLA and other civic and faith organizations against the Trump administration's border policy.
We were there. Here's what happened:
"This photo is the way I felt. I know the feeling because my father was arrested. I don't want anyone to go through that feeling again, because that feeling is harsh. Dad was deported back to Guatemala and then he had to cross the border to spend time with us." Ashley, 16,@LAist pic.twitter.com/hujFa8ef67— Kyle Grillot (@kylegrillot) June 21, 2018
