Valley cities spending money on migrant care could be reimbursed


MCALLEN, Texas — Reimbursements may be on the way to Rio Grande Valley cities helping with the surge of migrants from Central America.

U.S. Senator John Cornyn announced a $30 million funding plan to reimburse those local governments. It’s part of an agreement in the Border Supplemental Package before congress. The money would come from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

While many Valley cities have spent money on migrant care, the city of McAllen would benefit more, having already spent more than $80,000 since January 1.
