Al Sharpton and a group of faith and civil rights leaders will tour the Haitian immigrant camp Thursday on the southern U.S. border in Del Rio, Texas.

Mayor Bruno Lozano, a Democrat, is slated to accompany the group and participate in a press conference with them at approximately 1:30 p.m. local time near the International Bridge, according to a press release from the Sharpton-founded National Action Network (NAN).

Sharpton and the group intend to "meet and pray with refugees in the wake of the humanitarian crisis," the press release further explains.

Founded by Sharpton in 1991, NAN is a civil rights organization that "works within the spirit and tradition of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to promote a modern civil rights plan that includes the fight for one standard of justice, decency and equal opportunities for all people regardless of race, religion, nationality or gender," the release added.
