TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — The Ignatian Solidarity Network (ISN) is holding a vigil with migrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Event organizers originally expected Title 42 to end Monday.

However, a federal judge ruled Friday to keep the pandemic-era health policy in place.

ISN members will still hold a vigil at 11:30 a.m. Monday, live streaming it from the border.

They are asking Americans to light a candle between 11:30 and 2 p.m. as a symbol of solidarity with migrants seeking asylum.

The live stream is available on YouTube:
