A rally to protest for immigrants’ rights is set for tomorrow in Kankakee County.

The gathering will begin around noon at Goodwill in Bourbonnais before protesters being marching. The march will head south down South Main Street to Kennedy Drive before turning on Court Street stopping at the Kankakee Court House.

After a brief break, protesters will continue their march out of town, with the final destination the Jerome Combs Detention Center off Interstate 57. After the protest, the march will return the way they came, back to Goodwill in Bourbonnais.

In all, protesters will walk 17 miles across the County roundtrip.

“We are planning a Peaceful Protest to Defend Immigrants Rights & for all those who don’t have a voice right now because they are being kept in CAGES! For all those who have immigrant family members and know the struggle of being a minority, you know the struggle!” said protesters on their Facebook event page.

As of writing, over 100 people had committed to the event.
