People came together at the Columbia County Courthouse last night to support the immigrant community in Columbia County and to call for a stop to Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) detentions, which under expanded Trump administration policies are separating families. Not everyone in the vicinity of the courthouse last night shared those sentiments. Just after Bryan MacCormack of the Columbia County Sanctuary Movement began speaking, the occupants of a car passing on Union Street were heard to chant "Trump, Trump, Trump."
Roger Hannigan Gilson reports on the event in today's Register-Star: "200 gather at courthouse to protest detentions, call for justice." The following pictures of the gathering were taken by Gossips.
