Anti-immigration protests are growing, and this weekend alone (July 18-20) there are over 500 planned protests around the United States.

The protests are aimed at stopping the influx of Central American children flooding across the border. More than a dozen smaller community protests already have played roles in stopping the children from being brought there.
