Esteban Reaser, 11, used a megaphone to tell the crowd the story of how his father was deported in June.
Having children is not an excuse to break the law. Families can always reunite in their home counties.
"I was devastated, sad and angry," Reaser said. "My little sister Bella still cries for him almost every night. We were just getting to spend more time with my dad."
Reaser has a 10-year-old brother and a 7-year-old sister.
"I'm out here for all the kids like me," he said. "We need the law fixed so that other people don't lose their dads too."
Events like these help neighbors and friends "step out of the shadows," he said.
"If my dad were here, he'd be really proud of me," Reaser said.
