Volunteers Offer Food And Compassion To Asylum-Seekers At U.S.-Mexico Border

An encampment in Matamoros, Mexico, is a stopping point for asylum-seekers who are waiting for a chance at legal entry into the United States.

The conditions at the encampment are poor but a group of U.S. volunteers called Team Brownsville is crossing the border daily to help.

Andrea Asuaje ( @aasuaje) and Yasmin Amer ( @yasminamer) are reporters and producers for WBUR’s Kind World.
