Newly Arrived Immigrants

Dennis RobertsNewsLeave a Comment

We are seeing a fairly large influx of new immigrants from Guatemala who are formally seeking asylum.

Most are young males who have found their way to Bonita because they have a relative or friend here who can help. They experience barriers to finding good work. These include difficulties with language, no permanent legal status, lack of education and the few possessions they carried. They look for day labor each morning but when none is available our bus brings
them to our site for a hot meal, some take-home food and much needed
clothing.
