Local News

“It’s just not the American way.”

Peaceful protesters gathered in Elmira’s Wisner Park Friday evening to voice their concerns over migrant detention centers on the United State’s southern border.

Protesters held signs condemning the conditions at migrant camps and showing their support for those seeking asylum.

The group hopes that those who come into the country are treated with respect, unlike those who entered the country as immigrants generations ago.
