MCALLEN – The First Lady from Guatemala and the First Lady from Honduras met in the Rio Grande Valley Thursday to pay a visit to several facilities where immigrants pass through.

Both first ladies met with U.S. officials to present and exchange solutions to hopefully decrease immigration numbers.

They visited multiple immigration facilities throughout the Valley including the McAllen processing center, the Donna tents and the respite center.

“We came to check if Guatemalans are doing well, especially our children. It is hard for them. We should continue to fight and unite, so they do well wherever they go,” says First Lady of Guatemala, Patricia de Morales.

De Morales spoke of a new program for those that return, including help with employment and technical skills.

“We need to keep making campaigns to prevent the massive immigration and help those who are here in the U.S,” says First Lady of Honduras Ana Garcia Carias.
