El Paso, Texas, Jul 30, 2019 / 23:25 pm
A Catholic diocese has teamed up with a local immigration aid group to help refugees on the western Texas-Mexico border.
The Catholic Diocese of El Paso and the HOPE Border Institute introduced a new Go-Fund-Me drive on Monday.
Entitled the "Border Refugee Assistance Fund," it will work to provide material aid to refugees and immigrants seeking asylum, especially from Central America.
Earlier this year, the Trump administration unveiled a "Remain in Mexico" policy requiring asylum seekers at the southern border to remain in Mexico while immigration courts process their case – a procedure that may take years.
