Shops near Sacred Heart Church seeing different business levels after the expiration of Title 42

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- One downtown business owner told ABC-7 that business has severely decreased since Title 42 expired.

Jesus Solano, a downtown business owner, said in a message to ABC-7, "It's been very slow since last week. Basically, we went back to normal or maybe a little slower."

There have been less and less migrants living around the church since the expiration of the CDC health order on May 11th.

Two weeks ago, Solano, the owner of "La Tiendita", a convenience store just a block away from the church, told ABC-7 that business had gone up around 50% since the surge in migrants began.

That owner stated he adjusted his store to include a walk-up window to allow for quicker sales to migrants looking for food and other items.
