(Calexico to get federal funds)....The funds are to help the City with Asylum Seekers who cross into the border city at the Calexico Port of Entry.

Esperanza Colio Warren, Calexico City Manager, says this year Calexico has experienced an increase in migrant releases, reporting more than 70 daily crossings at the Calexico Border. To avoid a migration crisis in the region, the state has allocated a grant of $2 million to provide assistance and support to migrants who are processed at the border so they can reach their destination. The City Manager says the funds will be distributed through non-profit organizations. She says the City expects the funds to arrive in about 2 weeks
