A Queens woman said she's trying to draw attention to the plight of immigrant children separated from their parents after they've tried to enter the country illegally.

Naila Costa made some posters then decided to hang them up on fences at schools, parks, and playgrounds around her Astoria neighborbood.

She said she's putting them up on fences to make a statement about how some of these children are being kept in fenced cages at holding facilities.

"There is no reason for them to be locked behind fences; so, I thought this is a way of making the experience very personal to anyone that sees the posters," Costa said.

Costa told NY1 she has put up about 15 posters throughout the Astoria and Jamaica areas and plans on putting more up in all five boroughs.
