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.

They’re illegal

      I agree. I’m so mad that our representatives are not doing anything to stop this as more and more are being allowed to come into this country and draining all our resources. Pretty soon they will be a majority in this country while Congress does nothing!

    Send them back , don’t let them run free in the US

    Gather them up in the middle of the night and fly them back. Why should we be responsible for these illegals.

    Yeah right, like they are really going to show up for their asylum hearings! Our countries laws on immigration are a laughing stock! These illegals are not fleeing their country for fear of their lives, they are coming for our jobs and benefits! It’s disgusting!

    I thought they would be kept in tents until they were deported. I’m losing hope for our country.

    Since our government can’t seem to pass E Verify, then the American citizens need to do their part and not hire an illegal immigrant or the company that’s employed them. Every time you hire a illegal immigrant you are hurting an American citizen opportunity to have a paycheck. We all know they work in construction, warehouses, restaurants, hotels, landscaping etc. Starting today let’s do our part as an American citizen looking out for the well-being of the next generation.

    By by stupid gringos!
