The facility holds hundreds of non-citizens awaiting a decision on their immigration status. Saturday advocates rallied in Taylor outside the detention center’s fence.
Signs and instruments in hand the crowd of advocates, students, and non-profits chanted, “Comunidades no jualas” or "communities, not cages."
Women who were recently released from the facility returned to be a voice for the women inside.
