LULAC National President addresses the migrant crisis in El Paso

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA)--- The League of United Latin American citizens (LULAC) is calling for immediate significant federal funding to support nonprofit organizations and communities impacted by the refugee surge.

On Thursday LULAC's National President held a press conference in the borderland. He says immigration reform must overhaul an outdated and inadequate system.

He urged the Biden Administration to act immediately through executive order while congress works out a long-term bipartisan solution.

"We're asking President Biden and Congress to provide the funds to cities like El Paso and to nonprofits like Catholic Charities, LULAC, Annunciation House, to make sure that we have the capacity. If we're dealing with five or 10,000 immigrants that are coming over each month. That's a lot of people, and they're going to require shelter, food, transportation, some may require medical attention.", says Domingo Garcia, LULAC national president.

Garcia adds LULAC is here to warn that we are at a critical tipping point, and the situation can only become more dire if the administration and congress do not act immediately.
