The White House is calling it a humanitarian crisis. Fifty-two thousand immigrant children have illegally crossed the U.S. border this year. Legally, most can’t be deported because they came without an adult and because of the deportation rule for the countries they came from.
Now charities across the nation are taking a look at how they can help, including right here in Wichita. While nothing is happening right now, Eyewitness News has confirmed Catholic Charities in the Wichita Diocese is planning a meeting later this month to discuss what resources it has to help, if asked.
