Emergency Response Needed: Humanitarian Crisis in San Bernardino

05/29/2019

Over the past few weeks, federal Customs and Border Protection agents have been dropping off Central American migrants at a San Bernardino bus station with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. These are fathers, mothers, and children as young as three-years-old who for weeks, had been at detention facilities and now found themselves in a new city with no food or shelter.

Since hearing of the crises, the San Bernardino community has come together and jumped into action. Our friends at the Inland Coalition for Immigration Justice are building a strong, long-term infrastructure to effectively manage the needs of the migrant families.

Thanks to many organizations and hundreds of individual donors, over $10,000 and countless supplies have been collected but more help is needed. Night shift volunteers and monetary donations for transportation and medical care are desperately needed. Click here to register to volunteer.
