San Diego Churches Taking In Detained Immigrants Released by ICE

From San Diego-

Several local churches in San Diego say they are being overwhelmed with the influx of asylum-seeking immigrant being dropped off on the streets with nowhere to go.

The churches say they have been taking in about 50 people a day in 10 different locations. Their hospitality toward immigrants are needed more than ever as Immigration and Customs Enforcement releases detained families without any plans on where these asylum seekers should go or how they should get there.

"There has been a definite uptake in the number of people that are needing assistance right now," Episcopal Dioceses of San Diego spokeswoman Hannah Wilder said. "My understanding is that ICE is dropping people off without any place to go without any food or money."
