Tucson to gather aid for immigrant children

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Officials and community leaders in Tucson are collecting donations for immigrant women and children from Central America.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that local and federal officials met Friday to discuss how to gather and distribute humanitarian aid to migrants in Tucson as well as in Nogales.

The newspaper reports that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has been leaving several hundred immigrants at a Tucson Greyhound station over the past three weeks.

Officials say most of them are Central Americans and Mexico who were apprehended in south Texas.

Councilwoman Regina Romero says the city is seeking which emergency shelters can take in women and children.

Bishop Gerald Kicanas says the community also is considering a shelter for migrant children currently detained in Nogales.
