The City of Deming has opened up a shelter for mostly Central American families seeking asylum.
The New Mexican Muslim community is extending their support, as they have in the past, to support refugees and asylum seekers.
Please acknowledge, Muslims respect all traditions and people of faith. We are reminded it has been an important duty and obligation to support fellow brothers and sisters in humanity and those in need.
