In both D.C. and New York, social service and religious groups have worked to support new arrivals.

在华盛顿特区和纽约,社会服务和宗教团体都在努力支持新移民。

They have offered temporary shelter, medical attention and often transportation to the next stop on a migrant’s travel plan.

他们为移民提供临时住所、医疗服务,通常还提供前往移民旅行计划下一站的交通工具。

On a recent August day, a bus carrying 41 migrants from Arizona arrived at a Christian religious center in Washington's Capitol Hill neighborhood.

最近8月的一天,一辆载有41名来自亚利桑那州的移民的大巴抵达华盛顿国会山附近的一个基督教中心。

Within minutes the migrants were inside, enjoying a hot meal and filling out arrival forms.

Texas buses arrive haphazardly, said Tatiana Laborde, the aid group’s managing director.

该援助组织的常务董事塔蒂亚娜·拉博德说,得克萨斯州的巴士没有计划性地就抵达了。

It will hear from other aid groups that a bus carrying a certain number of people has left Texas.

它将从其他援助组织那里收到消息,一辆载有一定数量的人的大巴已经离开得克萨斯州。

At some point 48 hours later, that bus drops off riders at Washington's Union Station.

48小时后的某个时刻,这辆大巴在华盛顿联合车站让乘客下车。

The state also deploys medical workers on the transports.

该州还在运输车上部署了医务人员。

“They don’t want to just dump people here," Laborde said of Arizona.

Manuel Castro is New York City’s immigration chief.

He said: “Many are fleeing persecution and other very severe circumstances. They’re confused. And we want to make sure that we support them as much as possible….”

他说:“许多人是为了逃离迫害等非常严峻的情况。他们很困惑。我们希望确保我们尽可能地支持他们……”

Many of those who arrive in Washington do not stay long.

许多抵达华盛顿的人并不会停留很长时间。

Mayor Muriel Bowser recently made her second request to the U.S. military for National Guard support.

Many of the migrants come from Venezuela.

许多移民来自委内瑞拉。

In the last two months, the number of Venezuelans seeking refuge in the United States has quickly grown.

In July, U.S. border forces stopped Venezuelans more than 17,000 times.

今年7月,美国边境部队拦截的委内瑞拉人超过1.7万次。

That is up 34 percent from June and nearly three times as much from July 2021.

这比6月增长了34%,几乎是2021年7月的3倍。

The United States does not recognize the government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

美国不承认委内瑞拉总统尼古拉斯·马杜罗领导的政府。

The lack of official recognition makes it more difficult for the country to take back asylum-seekers from the U.S.

由于缺乏正式承认,从美国撤回该国的寻求庇护者变得更加困难。

The Mexican government also refuses to accept the migrants, which leaves the U.S. few ways to handle Venezuelan migrants.

墨西哥政府也拒绝接收这些移民,这让美国几乎没有办法处理委内瑞拉移民。

Kelin Enriquez is one of the Venezuelan migrants.

克林·恩里克斯是委内瑞拉移民之一。

She and her children first arrived in Washington and later went to a family center in New York to plan the family's next steps.
