'Close the Camps' protests sweep U.S. cities

Demonstrators across the U.S. gathered on Tuesday for protests demanding the closure of migrant detention centers.

Conditions at U.S. facilities holding migrants along the border have become a flashpoint since an internal U.S. Department of Homeland Security watchdog warned of "dangerous overcrowding" at an El Paso facility in May.

Members of a congressional group visiting the main Border Patrol facility in El Paso and a facility in Clint, Texas, on Monday said migrants were being kept in deplorable conditions and, according to U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, told to drink out of toilets.

Immigrant rights groups including MoveOn and United We Dream are organizing Tuesday's protests at scores of district offices of members of Congress around the United States, saying the conditions inside the immigrant detention centers were "horrific." They are calling for the lawmakers to close the detention centers and to not allow any extra funding for the detention of immigrant families.
