O'Rourke seeks help after ICE drops migrants at bus station


"We're trying to ensure that ICE gives the community notice next time, when they know that there's not going to be space in existing migrant shelters, to give the community 24-hours heads up so that we can find hotel rooms, beds, alternative shelters, food, volunteers, everything that these people will need to make sure that they are okay", he stated.

As a result, large groups of migrants have been bussed into the city and released, largely to the care of nonprofits in the area. ICE says more will be released tomorrow and following day. Escobar said the migrants released at the bus station Sunday and Monday were in addition to 200 people Annunciation House accepted each of those days.

O'Rourke, whose term representing El Paso expires shortly, posted on Twitter that local shelter Annunciation House needed fresh fruit and unworn clothing.

"Am at one of the shelters with families helping distribute food now - they are grateful".

"All of a sudden a bunch of people show up", Greyhound spokeswoman Crystal Booker told CNN, according to The Hill. "We are not given prior notice".

Black Mirror film Bandersnatch gets an expectedly mind-jolting trailer
David Slade , who helmed the season four episode Metalhead , is rumored to be the director of the movie. We don't know very much about it at this point, but that's okay because it'll be releasing tomorrow.

The waiting area at the bus terminal is small, said El Paso police spokesman Sgt. Robert Gomez, and many people were left standing outside in the cold. Since at least 2014, our country has known that the immigrant population coming through our southern borders is no longer made up of males from Mexico but is instead made up of families and children from Central America.

Later, four buses arrived for people to board and stay warm, he said. The policy states that if ICE has "more people to drop off than local shelters and agencies can receive and house, then ICE will drop those migrants off in the street". He said he has been receiving about 2,000 migrants a week. "The situation is really hard for them", Dylan Corbett, executive director of Hope Border Institute, said in the CBS4 story.

After a similar release Sunday, ICE blamed "decades of inaction by Congress" for limiting its ability to remove families who are in the USA illegally.

Escobar called ICE's action "really alarming". "We are here to give what we have", Michelle Sanchez said. O'Rourke praised a Washington Post reporter who has been covering those tragedies - the most recent death occurred in El Paso, O'Rourke's hometown.

"The federal government has an obligation to provide humane, temporary holding facilities for these migrants in their custody until they can be accepted by NGOs like Annunciation House".
