Protesters around the nation are calling for the Trump administration to reverse its immigration crackdown.
"We just need to be really careful that we don’t turn our wonderful nation, into a police state, and that’s a first step, when you separate nursing babies from their mothers. It just makes me want to cry," said Cindy Metcalf, a protester who joined thousands at the Texas State Capitol.
Similar protests were held in other Texas cities including San Antonio and El Paso.
