About one thousand protesters showed up to support the Palestinian people at the Dearborn Police Station amidst another conflict with Israel.

With President Joe Biden in town, they’re also protesting America’s continued financial and military support of Israel.

Karima G of Dearborn is Yemeni-American.  She says she hopes the Biden Administration has a change of heart.

“We're here today to support the Palestinian people and to make sure that their voices are heard. And that, you know, hopefully the U.S. can stand up and stand with them instead of against them.”

This was one of three protests taking place in Dearborn Tuesday with more demonstrations planned for later in the week.
