Shelter Aid Update
Our friend and shelter director Pastor Altamirano shared with us a bittersweet thank you for our support in paying for one of his shelter family’s going away dinner. She loves seafood, and Pastor Altamirano was kind enough to plan a fried fish dinner with the help of everyone at Camino de Salvacion. This woman and her child had been waiting for their asylum case to be heard since March, and has been repeatedly postponed to the point that she has decided to return to her home country. Regrettably, this is the case of so many waiting in the Tijuana shelters, due to horrible policies like MPP(Migrant Protection Protocols) forcing people to “remain in Mexico” to await their case to be heard. Through this we close our doors instead of welcoming immigrants, and force them to wait in another country with no assistance.
It is with heavy hearts that we send her and child off, but are grateful to have indulged her in a farewell comfort. We are extremely grateful for your continued support, as it is truly going to people who need it, and have no other support. We depend on each and every one of you so much, as you help us feed and care for these families. We also share this story with you in hopes that you will assist us in our mission of ending such inhumane policies such as MPP.
