News

The chaos along the United States-Mexico border has seen many here in Connecticut reacting.

A rally for migrants was held in New Haven on Monday evening.

Many showed they support the migrants coming over.

“Our borders have now become places of violence and not welcome. I think if people are outraged, they’ve lost sight of what this country is meant to be. Of refugees,” Stephen Kobasa said.
