Church places Jesus, Mary and Joseph in 'ICE detention' in immigration protest

- An Indianapolis church locked the figures of Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus in a cage Monday night to protest the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy.

Called the #EveryFamilyIsHoly campaign by Christ Church Cathedral, statues of the Holy Family are in front of the church in an “ICE detention” chain link cage to “bring awareness to the humanitarian atrocities from our nation’s ‘zero-tolerance’ immigration policies on the border and here in Indianapolis.”

The display was set up weeks after thousands of minors were separated from their families at the border. After national outrage from both sides, Trump signed an executive order in late June allowing families to remain together in detention.

Stephen Carlsen, dean and rector of Christ Church Cathedral, told Fox News the demonstration will remain outside the downtown Indianapolis church however long it's needed.
