EUGENE, Ore. -- Thousands lined the steps of the federal courthouse in Eugene on Saturday for a rally against the current immigration policies.

The Families Belong Together Rally in Eugene was one of several that took place across the state and country.

The organizer for local rally, Catherine Clinton, said they're asking for an end to family detentions and to the criminalization of immigration.

"We did get the executive order that stopped those separations, but then we saw those families behind bars. That's not what we want to see either, said Clinton. "We understand that immigration is a complex issue, but there's no reason ever that it needs to violate human rights, so that's what we're here demanding."

She said she decided to organize this rally 11 days ago and added that seeing the huge crowd was very reassuring.
