Catholic Charities has seen an increase in the number of undocumented immigrants arriving to our border.

And today was one of the busiest days in several months.

More than 100 people arrived to Catholic Charities today, however one mother tells FOX 2 news she made the dangerous voyage to the United States in order to find a cure for her son’s illness.

27-year-old Kenia vaquero says she initially decided to flee from El Salvador because of the violence.

“You would get on the bus and get mugged. They’ll kill you just to steal the smallest things.”

Kenia said it was very difficult when her and her four year old son arrived to the first shelter.

“I would have to warm up my son with my own body. He had bad cough and would just tell me he was extremely cold.”
