Rio Texas Churches & Missions Ship Relief Supplies to Asylum Seekers in Piedras Negras

WATCH KSAT 12 ABC NEWS:  Warm clothing, gloves, blankets and bedding are necessities in cold weather, especially for asylum seekers who arrive still wearing what they did when they left their homes in Central America months ago.

The Rev. Roberto Gomez Reyes, superintendent of the United Methodist Church in Mexico, said that at one point, about 60 men, women and children were waiting in the cold on the Mexican side of the International Bridge between Eagle Pass and Piedras Negras.

George Barnette, missions coordinator of the Hill Country district of the United Methodist Church, said the donations have nothing to do with politics or the debate over immigration policy.
