Hundreds Pack LaGuardia Airport To Support Children Torn From Families At Border

The protesters came after an advocacy group reported seeing migrant kids arriving at the New York airport.

Crowds of protesters filled a New York City airport where migrant children who had been separated from their families along the U.S.-Mexico border were reported to be arriving late Wednesday night, carrying their few belongings with them.

The emotional demonstration at LaGuardia Airport in Queens ignited shortly after workers with the immigrant advocacy group Make the Road New York reported seeing several children deplaning around 10 p.m.


Within minutes I saw a group of about four kids that were clearly being escorted out. They were all very small,” he said, estimating the children to be between the ages of 4 and 10.

Barrientos said he had seen other children getting off flights and they enthusiastically stretched their legs and released pent-up energy. These four kids behaved differently.

“They looked very scared, they looked very numb. They were all carrying little plastic bags with the few belongings that they had,” he said. “It just looked like it had maybe a piece of underwear, a T-shirt, a toothbrush ― it was that small of a bag.”


A Worthy Read.
