Some members of the Greenville community will join an expected hundreds of thousands of people across the nation to march this weekend in honor of families separated at the U.S. border.

Greenville's Families Belong Together rally will be held Saturday morning at 9  at Graham Plaza in front of the Peace Center.

Rallies are scheduled in all 50 states on Saturday to protest the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy on immigration that's sparked widespread debate after more than 2,000 children were separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. 

Organizer Martinia Vega said in a press release that Greenville's rally is being held "to protest the malicious mistreatment of immigrants and their children by the Trump administration."

The rally will begin with opening speeches. A march will follow. The group will then plans to form a human wall down the sidewalk on Main Street until noon.
