A Republican senator from a southern border state has urged the Department of Homeland Security to start accepting private donations, hoping the money will improve holding conditions and give Customs and Border Protection facilities on the U.S.-Mexico border additional needed help.
Senator Ted Cruz sent acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan a letter Tuesday urging him to create a process for the federal entity to accept money and supplies from faith-based groups, non-governmental organizations, and charities.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Even with the additional supplemental emergency funding, I am confident that DHS and CBP can still use the generosity of the American people to help manage the humanitarian crisis on our border,” Cruz wrote in the letter.
Cruz said many Americans want to offer “tangible” help.
“This desire is laudable,” Cruz wrote. “But I understand that many of these organizations are currently having difficulties making donations because DHS and CBP currently lack procedures to accept their donations.”
