Illegal Immigration Protests

Illegal Immigration Protests

You'll notice a demonstration going on along Okeechobee Boulevard at the I-95 overpass.  It's one of hundreds happening across the country throughout the weekend and nearly two dozen across Florida. 

Protestors are taking a stance against illegal immigration.  It's believed that many of the unaccompanied children are crossing the border from Central America in an attempt to escape gang violence and poverty in their home countries. 

There will also be a protest at 9 a.m. tomorrow in the same spot as this morning's demonstration.
