Unaccompanied Minors: Humanitarian Crisis – Three-Day Action

The Minority Affairs Council and United We Dream held a three-day action to bring attention to the humanitarian crisis on the southern border due to the influx of Central American immigrants, many of them who are women and unaccompanied minors. The action began with a press conference with speakers from all over the nation who came to express their support.

The event was held from July 10 through July 12 across the street from Sacred Heart Church, the church that has transformed an area of their facilities to an aid station for these immigrants, in McAllen, Texas.
