The New Mexico Department of Health is now using a mobile medical van to help communities provide basic health services to migrants. 

These migrants have been processed and released by ICE and are awaiting asylum hearings. The move comes as Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has told state agencies to focus on the ongoing humanitarian needs of asylum seekers. 

The first mobile unit was deployed in Las Cruces this week.
