Hundreds of protestors gathered outside a New Mexico facility that's housing immigrants.
The Santa-Fe based Somos Un Pueblo Unido and a coalition of Catholic churches rallied for an end to deportations Sunday.
But they weren't the only ones protesting. Another group was there protesting the immigrants should be sent back to their home countries.
The event took place outside the temporary detention center where the immigrants are being held.
Currently, more than 600 women and children from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador are detained at Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia while they await either deportation or asylum.
Arrivals and deportations at the center are currently halted because of Chicken Pox.
