About 100 people came out for the March on Minocqua on June 30 at Minocqua Veteran's Park. Marchers expressed their opposition to the Trump administration executive order for its unclarity in uniting separated families at the border. "I can't believe we're living in a country that keeps kids in cages," said Catherine Parker, Lake Tomahawk. "We're heartsick. If we're going to separate a child from their parents, there has to be a plan to reunite them. We're a better country than this." Jane Evans, Woodruff, noted that the order signed is not enough to keep refugee families together. "It's just abhorrent," she observed. "It's totally against what America stands for ... we should protect our refugees." Some passerby's expressed opposite views. They declined comment. The event was hosted by the Democratic Party of Vilas County, Northwoods Progressives, Northern Highland LGBTQ, Northwoods Activism Group with support from MoveOn and Indivisible.
