  • As of 1 p.m. April 23, 2019 more than 130 asylum seekers had already been dropped off in Las Cruces today. Another 25 were expected by 2 p.m. today. Officials at the Emergency                   Operations Center (EOC) were expecting a busy day of asylum seekers being brought to Las Cruces.
  • Bed capacity for asylum seekers coming to Las Cruces is 193.
  • Progress has been made to streamline the volunteer process in Las Cruces, and EOC officials are optimistic an improved framework for scheduling volunteers could soon be established.
  • EOC officials continue to emphasize situational awareness for personnel and volunteers involved with asylum seekers. However, there haven’t been any issues reported.
