Eleven mothers protesting for immigration reform are making their way to the southern border and stopped by Bakersfield to spread their message.
For protestor Valeska Castaneda, it's about understanding the history of the people that migrate to the United States.
"We're walking for our documented and undocumented migrant communities that have been for decades suffering the atrocities from the policies here and the geo-policies from their homelands that have been displacing them."
The protestors want children to be released from detention centers and are asking CDCR officials to implement existing programs to reduce overcrowding.
