The June 30 #FamiliesBelongTogether marches brought hundreds of thousands of people to the streets, from protests in remote towns to the 75,000-strong Los Angeles march. Delaware had three demonstrations, in Wilmington, Dover and Milltown, with Delaware’s U.S. legislators speaking out against the criminalization of asylum seekers under the Trump Administration.
