Over the past two weeks the Border Patrol has dropped off more than 2000 asylum seekers here in Las Cruces, New Mexico, and more are arriving every day. Our community's response has been pretty incredible. These weary folks have been given food, shelter, fresh sets of clothes and shoes, a place to bathe, and a safe place to rest until the next part of their journey begins. Las Crucens are donating food, toiletries, money, and time to help out. Today we met some people who are raffling off art to raise money to help local churches and organizations with expenses.
You can buy some tickets to help our community's humanitarian response, even if you live far from this crisis in the borderlands. Please share this story with everyone who might help.
