Progressives gathered Friday night and held celebrity-endorsed vigils across the country in over 700 cities to protest migrant shelters – or what left-wing lawmakers like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) call “concentration camps” – on the southern border.

The planned events were part of the “Lights for Liberty: A Vigil to End Human Concentration Camps” protest, which was sponsored by the ultra-left wing Women’s March, Indivisible, Code Pink, Arizona Democratic Party LGBTQ Caucus, AZ Resist, and dozens of other leftist groups.

Organizers say “key events” took place in cities such as El Paso, Homestead, New York, and San Diego.

The website cites numerous false narratives, mentioning “abuse,” “neglect,” and “no running water” at the facilities.

The website states:

Key events are planned in El Paso, Texas, where migrants are being housed in outdoor conditions under a bridge with no running water for months at a time; Homestead, FL, at a migrant child detention facility that has caused mass abuse and neglect; in San Diego, near the point of entry site from Tijuana; in New York City, at Foley Square, where hundreds of migrants are processed through detention a day; and in Washington, DC, in Lafayette Park, to demand action from Congress to end concentration camps and impeach the President. Legislators, activists, organizers, and members of impacted communities will speak prior to the candlelight vigil.
