Protesters are blocking a Border Patrol detention bus at the Central Processing Station in McAllen, Texas.
The center, known as Ursula, is the largest such center in the country and is known as the “epicenter” of the President Donald Trump’s child separation policies.
“It’s a bit of a chaotic scene as protesters have surrounded this bus full of migrants,” noted NBC News correspondent Gabe Gutierrez. “You’re seeing protesters here as well as members of the media they have surrounded this bus right now.”
“Some CBP officers are pulling them off the bus,” he continued. “The bus, as you can see, is stationary right now and about to pull away.”
“This happened just in the last few minutes, it’s been quite chaotic,” he added.
“As you can see, there is growing outrage here in McAllen and also several other cities across the country this weekend as the protests are erupting,” Gutierrez concluded.

Trump badly needs GOP wins in these deep-red states to hold off impeachment momentum
President Donald Trump badly needs Republican gubernatorial wins in three deep-red states, but they're anything but a sure bet.
The president is expected to campaign for GOP candidates for governor in Kentucky, Louisiana and Mississippi over the coming weeks, and some of his most prominent supporters, including Vice President Mike Pence, will help out, reported Politico.
“(Those) are states where Republicans can win races for governor," said Henry Barbour, a Republican National Committee member and the nephew of former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour. "Those would be big momentum wins for President Trump heading into 2020, but in the unlikely event we lose in all those states it would clearly be a troubling sign that the president would have to overcome."
