Grandmothers outraged by the Trump Administration’s zero tolerance policy at the border has them packing their suitcases for a six-day road trip to the border of Texas and Mexico.
The movement was organized by Beacon, New York-resident, Dan Aymar-Blair, who proposed the idea on Facebook, which immediately garnered national attention.
Now 25 to 30 grandmothers, mothers and concerned citizens have joined the journey, Aymar-Blair told Brad Show Live Correspondent Yonathan Elias on July 31.
“We add to the caravan in every city,” he said. “There is an untold number of people at every location; and we are stopping at six cities along the way.”
Immigration-related volunteer work will begin at McAllen, Texas
The organizer noted that people are coming from all over the U.S., including Alaska and Oregon. He added that when the group leaves Houston, Texas, there will be a following of at least 20 vehicles.
Originally departing from Union Square Park in New York City, the caravan has attracted the sponsorship of the Veteran Service Corps., and it is expected to culminate in McAllen, Texas where one of the largest U.S. detention centers is located.
Upon their arrival to McAllen, vigils, demonstrations, rallies and immigration-related volunteer work will begin.

Come for the immigration, stay for the fun.
