(WXYZ) — "Close the camp" protests are expected take place throughout southeast Michigan Tuesday.

Organizers say they are demanding detention centers be closed, deportations stopped and families be reunited. According to the organizers, they want lawmakers coming home for the Fourth of July break to see the outrage in their hometowns.

There are two demonstrations planned in metro Detroit – one outside of Representative Brenda Lawrence's office in Southfield and another outside Representative Debbie Dingle’s office in Ypsilanti.

The protests are planned to begin at noon today.

Move On, United We Dream, Families Belong Together and American Friends Service Committee have joined to organize the rallies.
