CHAPARRAL, N.M. (AP) - Volunteers say around 100 Haitian immigrants suspected of entering the U.S. illegally are being held in a New Mexico county prison.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement told KVIA-TV in El Paso, Texas, (https://goo.gl/5TG2VR) last week the agency has detained the men in partnership with the Otero County Prison Facility.

Volunteers say around 130 men are believed to have crossed through California before being detained and sent to different facilities while they await deportation.

The advocacy group Haitian-Americans United is looking for French-speaking volunteers to help with counseling and legal services.
