Hundreds of people protested the separation of immigrant families at a rally Sunday afternoon at Kansas City's Mill Creek Park. "This is my very, very first rally ever," Fabiola Cruz told the crowd.
A Topeka shelter has been receiving children who were separated from their parents at the border for about two weeks, its executive director confirmed Friday. The Topeka campus of The Villages, Inc. started accepting children who had entered the country without a parent or other relative last year. It’s been scaling up its capacity for migrant children since then, and can now house up to 50 of those kids.
