Since March 28 Loaves & Fishes has served 2,056 migrants released into the Harlingen community by Border Patrol. Half of them are children.
We’re grateful to Border Patrol and the Harlingen Police and Fire Departments for working so closely with us to ensure that these people are not left on the street. We also commend our friends at Queen of Peace Catholic Church for helping us house people when our facility is over crowded.
Almost all of these individuals have spent one night in our shelter. Their family and friends have bought them bus or plane tickets to travel beyond the Rio Grande Valley.
