Thousands of people descended on the streets of downtown Long Beach Saturday morning as part of a nationwide movement calling on the immediate reunification of families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border.
For the second time this month a demonstration will be held in Long Beach this weekend to protest the Trump administration’s practice of separating families at the nation’s southern border, which was reversed via an executive order last week.

In a letter to the board that governs MemorialCare Health System Tuesday afternoon, Long Beach leaders said statements made by the CEO of Community Hospital in recent days are inaccurate—specifically claims that the hospital cannot stay open.
The Long Beach City Council will be considering a new operator for Community Hospital during next Tuesday’s council meeting, just weeks before its scheduled closure following the discovery of an active fault line on the property late last year.
A change in vendor operations will render the state’s Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) System inoperable for EBT cardholders wanting to make cash withdrawals or food purchases next weekend, according to the California Department of Social Services (DPSS).
