US immigration: Lawyers want detention centre in Florida closed

Demonstrators are determined to shut down a US detention centre holding migrant children without their parents.

    Lawyers in the United States say migrant children are being mistreated and held illegally in a Florida detention centre.

    They are calling for the facility, which houses more than 2,000 children, to be closed amid claims it runs like a military camp.

    Al Jazeera's Andy Gallacher reports from Homestead, Florida.
