Many organizations are working round the clock to rehabilitate the people who are in need of food, shelter, basic sanitation, medical support, financial support, education, and more.

However, their arrest didn’t last long and was released within twenty-four hours itself as there was a national uproar due to their wrongful arrest. After release, they filed a lawsuit against the state, which they won comfortably along with $3.75 million in settlement amount.
The settlement amount was made into Frontera Fund that supports migrant rights, works towards the rehabilitation of Hispanic community, and helps many organizations that work towards the same cause.
Some of the agencies that are supported by Frontera Fund are Arizona Justice Project, American Immigration Council. Aliento, Promise Arizona, No More Deaths, SySTEM Phoenix, Center for Neighborhood Leadership, and more.
