CHARLOTTE (QUEEN CITY NEWS) — Charlotte’s Latino community is asking for help for immigrants coming to the Queen City.

The Latino Coalition held a press conference on Friday, August 5, and said Charlotte is seeing a surge in people coming to the area from the Mexican border.

They said approximately 1,400 men, women and children have arrived in the area since May 2022.

The group said the city of Charlotte is running out of resources.

“We are here to call the community to let them know we need help. We need to increase capacity for certain families. We’re going to call the city, the county, the state to let them know this is a situation we need to address. We have to be proactive to manage it in the best possible way,” said José Hernández-Paris of the Latin American Coalition.

The Latino Coalition believes that many of the people who come to Charlotte come to the area because the city has a Federal Immigration Court.
