Protesters gather ahead of local Jeff Sessions rally
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) — People are gathered in downtown Fort Wayne to protest Attorney General Jeff Session's Fort Wayne rally discussing immigration policy.
Jeff Sessions is set to speak at Parkview Field, 1301 Ewing St., starting at 1:15 p.m. on Thursday, June 14, in the Suite Level Lounge.
But some community members have organized a protest to his rally.
According to the event's Facebook page, they are asking protesters to "come with signs to let him know that separating children from their parents at the border is unacceptable and is crossing a moral line."
"I just believe that we have to support each other as a community, as Americans, and I believe that the idea of separating families is just monstrous," one protester said.
They said they plan to meet 30 minutes before his scheduled speaking time and plan on meeting at the corner of Jefferson and Ewing.
