California church helps undocumented immigrants get east

California church helps undocumented immigrants get east

In the midst of turmoil and violence circulating the topic of immigration, a church in California temporarily put the politics aside in order to “address a humanitarian crisis.”

According to CBS Los Angeles, 14 adults and 32 children sought out shelter at St. Joseph’s Church in Fontana after illegally crossing the border into Texas last Thursday. They waited there until they could be transported to a bus station around 6:45 p.m. that day.

Breitbart.com reports that some of these undocumented immigrants could be headed to New Jersey or New York, with “travel cash” allotted to the group by the church, according to San Bernardino Diocese Spokesman John Andrews.

“The Catholic Church welcomed us. We are here, we are okay,” Bianca, a Salvadoran who is seeking refugee status with her mother in the States, told CBS Los Angeles.

Andrews also said according to CBS Los Angeles, “Watching them come off the bus – I see a lot of smiles, I see children playing . . . a little diversion from what they’ve been through,” he said.
