On Tuesday, Christ Church Cathedral in Indianapolis - pro-cathedral for the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis - chose to take a stand on the issue, placing a statue of the baby Jesus with parents Mary and Joseph on its front lawn, surrounded by a chain-link cage, to protest the president's immigration policy.

"The campaign's icon of The Holy Family, held in detention, is now on the Cathedral's lawn facing Monument Circle".

"The statement with the Holy Family says as much about our policy as any statement would say", the Rev. Canon Lee Curtis of Christ Church Cathedral, who came up with the idea, told NBC News.

The church put up Nativity statues, typically used at Christmas, surrounded by chain-link fencing topped with barbed wire Monday night to protest Trump's controversial "zero-tolerance" border policy. "The fact that it's controversial isn't because I want to be controversial", Steve Carlson, the church's dean, said.

Christ Church Cathedral in Indianapolis has unveiled sculptures of the Holy Family inside a cage on its lawn.

"Near the caged Holy Family is a sign that reads "#EveryFamilyIsHoly" and "CadaFamilyEsSagrada", its Spanish equivalent.

Religious leaders have condemned the administration for separating migrant parents from their children at the border and otherwise insisting on "zero tolerance".

"I know what the Bible said", Carlsen said.

It was unclear how long the display would remain in place, but church officials suggested it could remain up as long as families continue to be detained.

"According to the Golden Rule, we're supposed to love our neighbors as we love ourselves", he said.

It wasn't clear how long the display would be up, but when ABC News asked, Carlsen said, "How long are we going to keep detaining families indefinitely?"

"We are hoping to draw attention that indefinite family detention is wrong", Curtis said to the Indianapolis Star.

Over the weekend, thousands took to the streets across the country to protest Trump's family separation policies.
