REPORT: As ICE releases migrant families by the hundreds, churches and businesses step up to help


Local charities and businesses have stepped in to provide coats, clothing, shoes and temporary shelter to migrant families being released weekly by the hundreds at local churches.

The outpouring of generosity comes as the number of migrant families seeking asylum in the U.S. continues to rise at the border, overwhelming Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The article goes on to state the following:

Since October, the agency has been forced to release several thousand migrant families, dropping them off at local churches that have agreed to provide shelter until the families continue to their final destinations in other states to reunite with families. Once there, migrant families, who are typically given electronic GPS monitoring devices to wear on their ankles, are required to re-check in with immigration authorities to begin the process of applying for asylum.

The release of large groups of migrant families, however, has strained the resources of local churches, most of them small Hispanic congregations.

The report also included the following:

ICE has declined to release data on the number of family members the agency has released at local churches in the Phoenix area since October. But Schwartz estimated Tuesday the total number is now approaching 6,000.
