DEL RIO, TEXAS (Border Report) β€” More volunteers and supplies were on hand at the Val Verde Border Humanitarian Coalition respite center in Del Rio on Sunday.

Tiffany Zook, a coalition board member, said that the Migrant Protection Protocols policy was implemented on Tuesday, resulting in U.S. Border Patrol agents, and Customs and Border Protection officers driving migrants who have been apprehended to Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, across from Laredo, Texas, to await their asylum hearings.

Here are some photos taken at the center on Sunday:
