If you’ve driven through Downtown El Paso recently then you may notice migrant families who are trying their hardest to stay warm outside.

Temperatures overnight dipped down to below freezing causing dangerous weather conditions for people staying out in the cold.

It is so heartbreaking to think that these families will have to be outside when the coldest air of the season hits the borderland, but seeing the amount of donations and volunteer work from local businesses really restores my faith in humanity.
