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.
China accused of using Twitter, Facebook against HK protests
Twitter and Facebook said Monday they had uncovered a campaign by China to use the social media platforms against pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong.

Facebook said a tip from Twitter led to the removal of a network of pages, groups and accounts originating in China and involved in "coordinated inauthentic behavior" focusing on Hong Kong.
Twitter said it suspended 936 accounts that originated in China.
‘The election could be over before any votes are cast’: AP reporter breaks down Trump’s recession fears
President Donald Trump's re-election campaign could be destroyed by a recession before a single vote is cast, an Associated Press reporter explained on MSNBC's "Deadline: White House" on Monday.
Guest host John Heilemann read a quote from AP White House correspondent Jonathan Lemire.
"[P]rivately, Trump is growing increasingly worried the economy won’t look so good come Election Day. ... Though a pre-election recession here is far from certain, a downturn would be a devastating blow to the president, who has made a strong economy his central argument for a second term," Lemire reported. "And White House economic advisers see few options for reversing course should the economy start to slip."
‘No comment’: Emails show the VA took no action to spare veterans from a harsh Trump immigration policy
The VA’s approach differs sharply from the Pentagon’s, which won an exemption for active-duty members of the military.
Top officials of the Department of Veterans Affairs declined to step in to try to exempt veterans and their families from a new immigration rule that would make it far easier to deny green cards to low-income immigrants, according to documents obtained by ProPublica under a Freedom of Information Act request.
