About 30 people crossed the Southern Boulevard Bridge from West Palm Beach to Mar-a-Lago on Thursday night to protest how President Donald Trump’s administration is separating immigrant children from their families along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Participants in the Families Belong Together March met at the northeast corner of Southern Boulevard and South Flagler Drive at 6 p.m. before marching to the president’s longtime Palm Beach County home.

The Palm Beach County chapters of the National Organization for Women and Environmental Alliance hosted the event, along with United+ and the Student March to Stop Gun Violence.
Members of the groups spoke before they began to walk across the bridge at about 7:15 p.m.
