SPRINGFIELD, Va. — Overlooking the cars just outside the nation’s capital from above Route 617 in Springfield, Virginians plan to protest on Friday over the federal government’s handling of the border crisis.
It is one of many protests planned this weekend by people upset over the border surge.
But just four miles from the protest site, the small, 70-bed Northern Virginia Juvenile Detention Home in Alexandria is home to undocumented children while they await their deportation cases to be heard.
