    Migrant Shelter Besieged

    Migrant Shelter Besieged

    Written by La Prensa San Diego

    A Catholic Church-run migrant shelter in the northern Mexican state of Coahuila is the target of escalating attacks. Every day, Casa del Migrante Posada Belen in the state capital of Saltillo serves between 80-100 mainly Central American migrants headed to the United States.

    Father Pedro Pantoja Arreola, shelter coordinator, reported that threats against his person reached a fever pitch one evening last week when he received 50 anonymous telephone calls in the space of several hours. According to Pantoja, he could hear no words spoken on the other end of the line-only breathing.

    Earlier, on October 11, a shelter worker observed a group of about 12 people destroying an electricity meter and cutting off power. Later, on October 25, a group of unidentified persons broke windows and destroyed an electrical transformer, again shutting off power to the building. The vandals reportedly shouted insults at the occupants inside and warned them to leave the premises. On October 28, yet another group attempted to forcibly enter the shelter, according to a letter from a network of 40 Mexican human rights organizations directed at high Mexican officials.

    [b] In the wake of the attacks, Saltillo Bishop Raul Vera accused the local National Action Party (PAN) of creating a climate of hostility around the presence of migrants.

    Stretching from Chiapas to Chihuahua, church-sponsored migrant centers provide food, medical attention and shelter to thousands of Central Americans traveling to the United States. On the border, the facilities also give assistance to undocumented migrants deported from the US.
    This can't be, according to Janet illegal crossings have slowed way down

    Sorry, but I think all migrant shelters should be shut down. No point in encouraging illegal migration. Each country should strengthen its own borders to prevent any from coming through.

    Funny isn't it how the mexicans are acting considering millions of their own citizens are here illegally? They obviously hate the competition, think illegal migration should be reserved for mexicans only?

    ENFORCEMENT works, demand it!
