Julián Castro Calls for Immigration Reform Outside Florida Detention Center

Five Democratic presidential candidates visited the Homestead Detention Center in Florida’s Miami-Dade County on June 28, a day after the second Democratic debate.

Among them was Julián Castro, who told reporters current immigration policies were a “failure.” Castro was joined by candidates Pete Buttigieg, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, and John Hickenlooper, reports said.

The facility houses thousands of migrant children, aged 13 to 17, who were separated from their parents while crossing the border, according to local media.

“We need to reform our immigration system.

It’s necessary to protect these children,” Castro said to the crowd in both English and Spanish.

Fellow candidate Elizabeth Warren visited the center on June 26.

She was followed on June 27 by Bernie Sanders, Beto O’Rourke, Bill de Blasio, and Tulsi Gabbard.
