El Paso City Council to address migrants and Title 42

KVIA

EL PASO, Texas -- With migrants being released into the streets last week with the overcrowding of shelters, city council addressed the issue today.

On Friday, when ABC-7 was covering the living conditions and next steps of the migrants, ABC-7 was told that many of the migrants were from Nicaragua, Venezuela, Mexico, Ecuador and Columbia.

John Martin, who is the director of the El Paso Welcome Center, tells ABC-7 that he had around seventy-one people in the living area, and fifty-eight of those were migrants.

As the end of Title 42 nears, the next few weeks could provide a preview of what to expect after Dec. 21.
