NOW: Demonstrators protest ICE raid threats

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Hundreds rallied in Milwaukee Monday, to protest the Trump administration's policies regarding immigration and the crisis along the U.S.- Mexico border.

A mix of faith groups, as well as immigrant rights advocacy groups marched to the ICE facility on E. Knapp Street.

The groups are upset about the President's threat to launch ICE raids in several cities across the country this past weekend.

That plan would've targeted some 2,000 immigrants, but was postponed.

"We're here to show that we're a whole community of immigrants, we deserve to be here, we planted our seeds here, and now all this community is contributing from the sows from the seeds," protester Josue Davalos Alonso said.

The President tweeted that Democrats in Congress must come up with changes to asylum laws, or else deportations would begin in two weeks.
