BLOOMFIELD — In towns across New Jersey, vigils will be held Sunday night to protest the separation of families at the border. Though the practice officially ended after President Donald Trump signed an executive order last week, many still feels the effects throughout the Garden State.

"This experience of politicians saying, 'America first,' or 'Make America great again,' -- what makes America great are those lives and experiences of those who have come from all over," says Joel Daniel Hubbard III, pastor of Park United Methodist Church, one of the locations holding a vigil to denounce the immigration policy.
