Congressman Raul Grijalva is expected to tour a Nogales shelter where hundreds of immigrant children are being held Monday.

For more than a week, the Central American immigrant children caught crossing the border in Texas have been relocated to Nogales.

Last week, Grijalva met with local and federal officials as well as Catholic officials to talk about gathering aid for the immigrants.
