Latinos, as told by witnesses, gathered in one room. Agents began to question them, separating those who have the legal right to live in the U.S. and those who entered here illegally.
Desiree Hughes said that she is in the USA legally, but she was not given the opportunity to talk with friends, which soon took on the bus.
