Jay K in Cleveland, Ohio: I don’t have an official crowd estimate and am terrible at guessing, but Market Square in Cleveland was packed. It was a very well-run event put on by some people new to organizing. They did a great job.

Photo 1: The woman holding the sign is Corky Wattles, who organized the vigil. Speaking is an attorney from Michigan Immigrant Rights Center (MIRC). They provide free legal services to immigrants in Michigan, including all unaccompanied children.
Photo 2: Not a great photo, but these are a few of the hundreds who walked through town with candles.
William Dudley at the San Diego/San Ysidro march sent a dozen photos. Here are four of my choosing, with his comments.
Inspectrix: First one is the crowd gathering on the Boston Common in front of the State House and the second was the vigil. The crowd was over 1000 and appeared quite diverse. The speakers were excellent, presented in both English and Spanish, and asked for action on the MA Safe Communities act, drivers licenses for all, and the call to end detention rather than softer efforts to make detention slightly more humane. There were also inspirational words from Boston Teacher’s Union about upholding the right to educate all children regardless of immigration status. Also the crowd just seemed awfully nice. Seeing people of conviction showing up is heartening.
