Asylum seekers are sleeping at the ports of entry all across the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas while border patrol claims they are at “capacity” and unable to process them. Refugees are being forced to endure extreme heat (above 100 degrees), and while many generous local residents from Texas and Mexico are taking them supplies daily, the need to send supplies to refugees waiting at the ports of entry is growing.
Neta is coordinating with local volunteers who have been taking supplies to the asylum seekers daily. To support their efforts, we are helping them raise funds to meet the growing need for supplies and food for asylum seekers. We are also taking online signups for local residents who are able to visit the ports of entry to take supplies or verify if there are asylum seekers who need help.
Your donations will help local volunteers from both sides of the border take supplies the refugees urgently need, such as:
- Baby wipes
- Non-perishable food items
- Hygienic supplies
