We were preparing to reopen our shelter for asylum seekers on May 1. Then this happened!

Sunday night, after receiving several phone calls pleading for our help, our team decided to open on an emergency basis and take in 50 immigrants. Most of them are still here – with many now having bus tickets to leave on Wednesday (tomorrow).

Our coordinators – Diane and my wife Doris, rallied our volunteers as the Tucson Police Department brought a city bus full of families up to our church. Churches and other faith communities across the city rallied to accommodate everyone. Tucson is an amazing place! So glad to be a part of this community and so glad that Justice for Our Neighbors is a part of the effort to provide compassion to those in greatest need!
