TEXAS, USA — Dozens of activists rallied outside of Alliance Airport and Prairieland Detention Center in Alvarado to stop the deportation of migrants from Africa.
According to activists, 60 of the individuals sought asylum in the United States due to the Civil War in Cameroon, also known as the Ambazonia War.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement has not confirmed the number of individuals or their country of origin slated to be deported Tuesday, Oct. 13.
