Reporter Martha Dalton takes us to the remote town of Lumpkin, Georgia. Volunteers are supporting the family members of detained immigrants. One small act of kindness–creating a place to stay–helps these families visit their loved ones. The volunteers also create an opportunity for people to come and meet those affected by immigration detention policies.
