Religious Leaders to the United States: 'Respect the Rights of Migrants'

Over 200 religious leaders from varying religions gathered at the United States-Mexico border on Monday to celebrate Human Rights Day. Their goal was to send a message to the Trump administration: that the United States has not followed international law that allows illegal aliens to apply for asylum.

The gathering was put together by the Quaker organization American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) who held a press conference at Border Field State Park in San Diego. Following the press conference, gatherers marched towards the border to "stand in solidarity" with caravan riders who walked thousands of miles to get to the United States-Mexico border.

“As a Quaker who believes in our shared humanity … We’re calling on the U.S. to respect the rights of migrants,” Joyce Ajlouny, general secretary of AFSC, told NBC News.

"We can do better. Our sacred texts tell us to tear down walls, to welcome the immigrant and to treat everyone as if they are God's children,” said Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, who held a sign that read “El Amor No Conoce Fronteras,” Spanish for love knows no borders.

When protestors made it to the border, they were stopped by border patrol agents. According to AFSC, 30 religious leaders were arrested by border patrol agents. 

Here are scenes from the press conference and march:
