News

WELLSOBORO, Pa., (WETM) – A large crowd gathered outside the courthouse in Wellsoboro Friday evening to hold a peaceful vigil concerning the treatment of migrants at the U.S. Southern Border.

Several churches and local neighbors participated. They are calling for an end to funding of migrant facilities and detention centers at the border.

This is one of many events protesting the immigration and customs enforcement – or ‘ICE’ – raids that President Trump said will happen this weekend targeting undocumented immigrants.
