    Immigration advocates call on county to deal with inhumane conditions facing asylum seekers

    SAN DIEGO -- A local immigration advocacy group says the county is facing a health and humanitarian crisis involving hundreds of migrant families here seeking asylum.

    The group, Immigration Justice League, claims that many families are dealing with conditions that are so bad, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors is guilty of child abuse.


    The IJL rallied in front of the San Diego County administration building Monday morning prior to the inauguration of the new county supervisors, The group said hundreds of legal asylum seekers, including hundreds of children, are going without food, shelter and resources. The group called on the supervisors to help the families as they wait for asylum hearings .


    “Look at that picture of a child in a cage. That is what we are doing,” said one IJL member.


    The group says many migrants are suffering in horrendous conditions at ICE detention centers near the U.S.-Mexico border or in migrant shelters. Others are even homeless on the streets of San Diegos.


    “I volunteered at the asylum relief shelter many times. I wiped the children’s runny noses. I wrapped blankets around them to stop their shivering. Even when their teeth are chattering, many of them are smiling, because they’re so happy to finally feel safe," said one IJL speaker.


    The group also alleges the supervisors have committed child abuse under California law, because they have failed to report suspected abuse or neglect of children.

    They said county officials have failed to provide children with adequate food, shelter, clothing, medical treatment or supervision.


    “We’re here to demand that they [the supervisors] do their jobs," one IJL member said. "What are their jobs?

    To protect the health and welfare of the people in this region.”


    District 1 County Supervisor Greg Cox said he and District 4 Supervisor Nathan Fletcher recognize the problem, and they will introduce a proposal to help migrant families at Tuesday’s board meeting.


    “Our primary focus is going to be on the health and human services side of this -- public health," Cox said. "That’s the county’s primary role is to make sure that those people that are coming through the process are given the healthcare needs they need temporarily until they get to their final destination.”


    Cox said he hopes to put together a task force of state, county and city representaitves to come up with a plan for a transitional refugee shelter.


    “It’s really a humanitarian issue," Cox said. "These are folks that have gone through the process we have and have been vetted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and they are basically going to have their opportunity to prove their worthiness to be given asylum in the United States. In the interim we need to make sure there’s the ability to get them to wherever their sponsor's home base is."


    The migrant issue will be discussed during the supervisor's meeting on Tuesday.

    Immigration activists call on San Diego County to help migrants

    SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A local immigration advocacy group is calling on San Diego officials to declare a state of emergency in the county as migrants enter the U.S. legally only to face less-than-ideal conditions.

    The Immigration Justice League (IJL) wants the County Board of Supervisors to address what they call a “humanitarian and health crisis” in San Diego that is posing a risk to migrants and their families.


    The group said many migrants have been allowed to legally enter the U.S. to seek asylum but they continue to suffer in horrendous conditions at ICE detention centers near the U.S.-Mexico border, migrant shelters and even on the streets, becoming homeless as they wait for their asylum hearings.


    The IJL said: “For the last few months, ICE has been dumping by the hundreds those released while awaiting hearings into the streets of San Diego and surrounding communities, with no food, and no directions as to where to go for help. It is the local charitable community and hundreds of volunteers that continue to do all they can to find these scared, cold, and in many cases sick detainees, provide them shelter, food, showers, clean clothing, needed medications, and means of transportation to relatives and friends that live in the U.S.”


    The IJL is demanding the county board come up with a plan and resources to assist the migrants who are in need.


    According to the IJL, since the Board of Supervisors’ April 2018 vote in favor of supporting President Trump’s lawsuit against California’s Family Values Act (SB 54) and sanctuary laws, “the dehumanization of the lives of refugees has escalated.”


    Sallie Hunt, who works with IJL and volunteers at an asylum relief center said she has witnessed first hand the mistreatment of migrant children.


    "It's just not right to keep those kids and their parents and lock them in cold rooms and keep them there and then drop them off somewhere in San Diego and leave them on the streets hoping that someone will help them," said Hunt.


    "If you see those stories about the children huddled in the aluminum blankets in the cold room, that's not fake news, that's not propaganda, that's really happening and it's horrific," she went on to say.


    The group went as far as calling what's happening "child abuse" and say they are ready to file a mandated child abuse report against the County Board of Supervisors if action isn't taken soon.


    Hunt said she hopes to see a permanent shelter and an intervention to stop the alleged abuse at the border.


    The topic is set to be discussed at the Board's meeting Tuesday with recommendations that Supervisor Greg Cox and Supervisor-elect Nathan Fletcher be appointed to a Board of Supervisors sub-committee to "establish a regional working group made up of federal, State, County and local regional stakeholders to address both short-term and long-term solutions for the migrant crisis in San Diego County."

    I've seen images of some of those so called "inhumane conditions facing asylum seekers" and they look like a McMansion compared to what many American citizens are living in.
