U.S. Accepting Ukrainian Refugees at U.S.-Mexico Border

Tijuana becomes final stop for refugees headed to the U.S.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has begun bringing in Ukrainian refugees at a pedestrian crossing in San Diego that had been temporarily closed, to process the sudden influx of people at the U.S.-Mexico border. Ukrainian evacuees seeking refuge have begun traveling to Tijuana by the hundreds, traveling through Mexico to apply for asylum in the United States.

CBP is working to process 578 people a day with the 24 officers stationed at the San Diego border crossing. In response to Eastern European churches calling for aid via social media, volunteers have also made their way to the border to assist in whatever ways are most helpful. Last week, an estimated 1,000 Ukrainian refugees were waiting in Tijuana to be processed.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for Commissioner Magnus as he oversees CBP operations.
  • For CBP agents as they process Ukrainian refugees at the U.S.-Mexico border.
  • For discernment for Secretary Mayorkas and DHS officials as the influx of migrants and asylum seekers continues to increase.
