Local immigration activists are alleging human rights abuses at the Polk County Detention Center.

They gathered Saturday to board a bus and drive to the center in Livingston for a protest.

They claim the detainees suffer from inadequate medical care, poor nutrition and a lack of access to legal services.

Protestors called for the closure of the facility, which houses hundreds of immigration detainees waiting for their cases to be resolved.
