Jaclyn Allotta brought her two children to protest Sunday.
“I’m here because I grew up in a border town and now live in a border town, this just pulls at my heart strings,” Allotta said. “For me it’s not a political issue, it’s a mother issue, it’s a neighbor issue, it’s a what’s right issue.”
Despite a number of requests, CBS News is not being allowed inside — not even near the perimeter of the facility. Officials said there are 200 kids inside now, but at capacity it can hold up to 4,000 children.
