Central American Refugees & Migrants
More than 6,000 Central Americans from Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua are seeking asylum and safety in the U.S. due to life-threatening violence and poverty in their home countries. Thousands are currently living in temporary shelters in Tijuana, Mexico waiting to be processed through the asylum system.
The situation has created a humanitarian crisis in our cross-border region.
In response, donors and nonprofit organizations are providing funding and immediate resources such as food, tents, healthcare, clothing, blankets and legal assistance to address the urgent needs of refugee and migrant families.
