Mexicali Mayor Norma Bustamante expressed her concerns regarding the closing of at least four immigrant shelters due to lack of Mexican government support.

La Voz newspaper reported that the mayor said the closing will lead to chaos as municipal shelters like Albergue Peregrino do not have the capacity to receive new immigrants.

Mayor Bustamante called the Federal Electricity Commission to provide a helping hand to shelters, whose managers have been unable to pay energy bills. Mexico Delegate in Baja California Alejandro Ruiz said days ago the government has provided up to two million pesos or around $100,000 to shelters for energy bill payment.
