They are hosting an event at the Boys and Girls Club which will have representatives from the Mexican Consulate in NYC here to help farmworkers from Mexico obtain Mexican passports. They will also have attorneys to assist parents in setting up legal guardians for their children if they are detained, as well as giving power of attorney to someone to care for their possessions.
