A protest is being held outside the US embassy later today calling for children already in detention centres to be reunited with their families.
Amnesty International Ireland is organising it after Donald Trump last night ordered an end to the practise of forcibly removing immigrant children from their parents at the border with Mexico.
There's been global condemnation after images showed children being kept in cages and audio emerged of them crying for their parents.
"What we now to see is the reunification of families as quickly as possibly. This kind of separation was never justified. Family units must be kept together in accordance with international standards of unity."
