Effort underway in Milwaukee to find homes for children who have crossed the border into the U.S.


MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors have crossed the border of Mexico and the United States, and an effort is underway in Milwaukee to find those children a home.

The League of United Latin American Citizens, or LULAC held an event on Wednesday night, July 23rd to coincide with the Latino Carnaval.

LULAC’s Midwest Vice President Darryl Morin laid out what he believes should be done to help the young immigrants coming into the United States.

“We’re working with a number of different agencies and within our own organization to bring these children to safe homes all across America, and with the grace of God, we’ll be able to bring some right here to Wisconsin,” Morin said.

LULAC has set up the Border Child Relief Program to raise money to help safely house immigrant children from Central America.
