Facing an imminent surge at the border, Univision promoted a swim coach who’s assisting illegal immigrants crossing the Rio Grande River.

Sunday’s Edicion Digital spotlighted a swim coach who has been training migrants how to navigate the Rio Grande and cross the U.S. border.

“We now go live to Mario Veneiro, the swim coach for Club Mantarrayas (Club Stingray), who teaches his countrymen that are set to migrate, free of charge,” Univision anchor Borja Voces said.

Veneiro told viewers that “all types of people” join his course and “each day more are added” to his waitlist.

Fellow anchor Carolina Sarassa asked Vaneiro about the process of training migrants to swim across currents.
