A rally and protest march against the Trump administration’s border and immigration policies turned into an act of civil disobedience Saturday when demonstrators blocked vehicle access to the Dennis DeConcini Port of Entry, leading police to divert cross-border traffic away from downtown.

The day's dramatic events began at around 11 a.m. when hundreds of people, many wearing white and hoisting signs, gathered in Karam Park on Morley Avenue for the Families Belong Together protest. There, they heard speakers condemn policies that have led to the separation of undocumented families and imposed limits on asylum-seekers.
