A fund is being started in Santa Fe that will support migrants crossing the border. The Albuquerque Journal reports that the city of Santa Fe is partnering with the Santa Fe Community Foundation and is asking residents wanting to help to volunteer their time and money to help migrants crossing the border into New Mexico. 

Officials say any money raised will go to operations in Las Cruces, El Paso and Albuquerque to help with costs for shelter, transportation and other needs. On Thursday, Santa Fe Mayor Alan Webber echoed his city’s support towards asylum seekers.

Last week, Mayor Webber announced that while Santa Fe would not provide temporary housing, the city would provide other means of support such as donations and volunteers.
