Mexican migrants will not receive financial aid from the U.S. government, even when they are essential workers, therefore, it’s time to show our support for them because they are also essential for the Mexican economy

After the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S., millions of them have lost their jobs and will not receive financial aid. This critical situation is exacerbated by the fact that since the majority of these hardworking women and men are undocumented, they are afraid of leaving their homes and they do not have access to healthcare.

The funds will be used to provide financial aid and healthcare for Mexican migrants.
