Thousands of people were expected to turn out for a rally in Washington, D.C., with more than 700 “Families Belong Together" sister marches planned in all 50 states on Saturday. Several other marches in at least four other countries emerged as well.

Photos posted on Twitter showed demonstrations in London, Munich, Paris, Hamburg, Tokyo and other cities.


Many of the international marches were organized by Democrats Abroad, the official arm of the Democratic Party for Americans living abroad.

The marches are intended to urge the administration to act on reuniting the more than 2,000 detained migrant children who have been separated from their parents.

The Hill has reached out to Democrats Abroad for comment on the rallies Saturday.

Just after the plans for the march in D.C. were announced earlier this month, Trump signed an executive order to halt family separations at the border.

But immigration advocates have raised concerns that the administration is not acting quickly enough to reunite the families that had already been separated under Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy.
