Earlier this week, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson was turned away from the temporary shelter for immigrant children. He and other lawmakers returned to the facility, Saturday. This time they were allowed in, but questions still remain.
"When are they going to be reunited," Nelson said.
President Donald Trump signed an executive order ending his administration's policy of separating migrant children from their parents, Wednesday. But in Homestead where around 1,200 kids are being housed U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch says around 70 of them are still separated from their families.
"What that executive order did not provide is clear instruction to reunify these families as quickly as possible," he said.
After the rally protesters were planning to light candles for the children being held in the center. But heavy rain caused the event to wrap up early.
