Present Status at Loretto-Nazareth Hospitality Center for Migrants
We started seeing an increase in the weekly average of arriving refugees.  What had been a weekly average of 30 to 50 refugee’s clamed to 60 to 90 and then increased again to 125 to 175 refugees per week.  Actually this week may surpass the weekly average because earlier yesterday ICE released from 100 to 150 refugees.  So we had a full house last night. 
The flow refugees are always unpredictable and the decision by ICE and whether to release or detain refugees is equally unpredictable.  What is not unpredictable is that Annunciation House is opposed to the detention of refugees and as long as ICE releases refugee families, we want to accompany these families and respond to their needs.  This is what we need your volunteer and donations help and support. 
The refugees ICE is releasing are from Mexico and Central America.  All are seeking asylum and most present at a Port of Entry along the El Paso border.  A few were detained by Border Patrol as they attempted to cross the border.
Please see below for items that we need.
