Several hundred people marched last Sunday, from Boyle Heights to Los Angeles City Hall, for a “Free Our Kids In Cages” event aimed at ICE enforcement.
The event was held to bring attention to children who are held in cages in custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
A flyer for the event said it was “also to end all racism/injustice to all minorities.”

It was a separate event and cause from the larger protest held in Hollywood on Sunday, in which thousands of people showed solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
