Indianapolis church mirror replaces caged Holy Family for immigration protest

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP) — An Indianapolis church that displayed statues of Mary, Joseph and Jesus in a cage to protest the Trump administration's zero tolerance immigration policy has replaced the Holy Family with a mirror so visitors can imagine themselves in a cage.

The mirror with #EveryFamilyIsHoly written above it encased behind fencing and topped with barbed wire outside Christ Church Cathedral on downtown Indianapolis.

The church is encouraging people to take selfies and share them online.

The Episcopalian church's dean and rector, the Rev. Stephen Carlsen, told The Indianapolis Star that he changed the display so visitors can envision themselves enduring the pain felt by detained and separated families.

The caged Holy Family display appeared earlier in July. President Donald Trump has since reversed his policy separating families detained at the border.
