Those who pass credible fear interviews are typically released on bond while they move forward with an asylum application, though as Mother Jones reported Sunday, ICE also has been "denying bond to some parents who have been separated from their children and are eligible to apply for asylum"-an "unusual move, which can extend the amount of time the families remain separated".

But getting families back together is proving problematic.

Other cities in Canada that held rallies included Toronto, Halifax and Ottawa.

DW's Michael Knigge met with Krzystof Sadlej from New York City, who had emigrated with his family from Poland when he was a boy and come to the U.S. under the diversity visa program that Trump wants to abolish.

Activists, including one holding a "Star Wars"-themed sign, gather during a rally to protest the Trump administration's approach to illegal border crossings and separation of children from immigrant parents Saturday, June 30, 2018, in Salt Lake City".
