Local non-profits preparing for more migrants at the border
With The Associated Press reporting that Title 42 – the policy that allows people to be turned away at the border due to COVID-19 concerns – is slated to end next month, several local nonprofits say they’re getting ready for more migrants at the border.
Immigrants continue to arrive at the central bus station in Brownsville, where the city offers free COVID-19 tests and vaccines. They also guide immigrants to call family in the country, so they can leave Brownsville as soon as possible.
Immigrants can also stay at the Ozanam Center, a shelter where they can get food, clothes and a place to stay before leaving.
Humanitarian organizations are in constant communication with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to get reimbursed for their services.
