HUNTINGTON STATION -

Protesters gathered Sunday in Huntington Station to demand that thousands of migrant children who were separated from their parents at the U.S. border be reunited.

Organizers say a new report found children were separated from their parents before President Donald Trump's Zero Tolerance Policy.
