"As a nation and a people we can do better", Lewis said.

The new instructions to agents do not allow parents who were separated from their children under President Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" policy to reunite with their children while they await a decision on asylum, a protection sought by thousands of migrant families fleeing violence in Central America.

More than 700 planned marches were expected to draw hundreds of thousands of people across the USA, from immigrant-friendly cities such as Los Angeles and NY to conservative Appalachia and Wyoming under the banner Families Belong Together, according to The Associated Press.

The Trump administration's controversial "zero tolerance" policy of separating immigrant parents and their children on the US border has resulted in the separation of almost 2,000 children from their parents and guardians, sparking a public outcry. One mom who was threatened with a Taser gun by an official for crying for her child said it's been more than 23 days since she talked to her son. "This is one of those where were ya' moments", he said. "I just don't see how a human being would do such a thing".

In cities like Los Angeles and NY, thousands of people marched with some holding placards calling for no more family separations and for the abolishment of the immigration agency ICE.

"A child should never be held hostage to force a parent to relinquish their legal right to seek asylum", said Wendy Young, president of Kids in Need of Defense (KIND).

In the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez, about 50 activists marched through downtown and travelled on to an worldwide bridge, holding banners against the border wall Trump wants to build and militarization of the areas alongside it.

More than 500 women, including a member of Congress, were arrested Thursday in the US Capitol complex protesting Trump's immigration policy. The father had not yet had his "credible fear interview", the first step in an asylum case, and though the immigration officer told him the form did not mean he would be deported, Zambrano said the language suggested otherwise.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement did not respond to a request for comment. Trump tweeted in conclusion.

"Occupy ICE" camps have been set up in several U.S. states.
