Families Belong Together March in Washington—a photo essay

Across the country people took to the streets on Saturday, June 30, to protest against President Trump's zero-tolerance immigration policy that separates immigrant children from their families. Below are photos taken by photojournalist Jenny Warburg of the estimated 35,000 people who participated in the Families Belong Together March in Washington.
