FLINT, Michigan – The Latest on Flint’s water emergency (all times local):
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder says he’s reaching out to Flint’s Latino community to make sure residents are getting bottled water and filters during the city’s lead-contamination crisis.
The governor on Friday visited Our Lady Guadalupe Catholic Church, where volunteers are distributing water and filters to the church’s predominantly Latino parishioners.
Snyder says after meeting with the deacon, he wants to help with logistics, water and blood tests, and removing any issues facing non-English speakers. The state said last month that immigrants living illegally in the U.S. are no longer being denied water because they can’t show ID.
