UNDERWEAR PROJECT: ASYLUM SEEKERS AT THE SOUTHERN US BORDER

SPC’s Immigration and Refugee Support Committee has learned of a desperate need at a new port of entry in Laredo, TX. Most of the asylum seekers have been walking for weeks and have only the clothes they are wearing—and no shoelaces. They have no means to support themselves until they connect with a family member or sponsor in the US. Our colleagues at Catholic Charities, who recently worked in the Laredo center, have asked us for help.
