Senators Leticia Van de Putte, Jose R. Rodriguez, and Sylvia R. Garcia invite members of the press to discuss the humanitarian efforts surrounding the surge of unaccompanied minors crossing the Texas border. While much information has been available regarding children in detention centers and federal immigration policy, the Senators would like to hear from community and faith-based organizations as to what resources they need and what obstacles they might be facing while caring for these children.
