More Donations Needed as More Migrants Arrive in El Paso
According to NPR, since Sunday nearly 400 migrants were dropped off near the Greyhound bus station in El Paso, Texas. As many El Pasoans prepared to celebrate Christmas, they also rallied on social media to gather donations and volunteers to help find shelter, food and even rides to airports for the migrants who were dropped off by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials.
NPR reports are saying ICE didn't contact any local shelters like they usually do when they are processing the releases. As more migrants arrive in El Paso, more supplies and volunteers are needed. On social media, the political wars have broken out about the situation and many are showing they are REALLY done with any holiday spirit. Ultimately, these are people who need help. If you are saying, "That is what they get for breaking the law" really think about everything you believe in.
If you would like to donate please contact Annunciation House as you can see in the Facebook posts they have some rules to the donation process.
