SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - In line with the immigration protests nationwide, protesters in Savannah descended on Johnson Square on Saturday afternoon to have their voices heard.

After speakers rallied the crowd together, hundreds of protesters marched to city hall carrying signs and chanting their frustrations.

"I couldn't imagine," said Emily Aluizo. "I have a three-year-old son so if someone were to rip away my child, I don't know how I would feel. So that's why we're here. That's the most important part, to bring those children back to their families."

The protest was peaceful.
