Heads Up!

We don’t usually hijack our own webpage to cover news items but in this case the humanitarian crisis at the border has just moved a little closer to home… Right down the road in Deming.

On Monday, May 13, 2019, the Deming City Council declared an emergency due to the delivery of 170 migrants who had been processed by the US Border Patrol and who were lawfully present in the United States.  Following this, the Federal Government continued to drop more migrants, and the City established emergency shelters in an airport hanger at the Deming airport and at the Southwestern New Mexico Fairgrounds.

Artwork by migrant children...  kinda look like artwork your own, don't they?Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham visited these facilities on May 19, 2019, and initiated efforts to obtain appropriate assistance from the Federal Government.  At this time, hundreds of migrants, lawfully present in the United States, are in need of assistance.

Tuesday / 4 June / 8am
On Local Flavor

GMCR  / KURU will present “first responding” volunteers from Silver City that have joined this grassroots response to an international issue.  They will discuss and provide the latest updates on the events and eye witness accounts of the activities in Deming, what assistance is needed, and how people throughout Grant County can help out with this humanitarian crisis. Visit the links below for more information.

And join us on Tuesday / June 4th / 8am on Local Flavor to hear more from those that have already become involved.  This is an important opportunity to express your basic humanity by helping out people in the most dire straights.
