Nowhere to go: A federal official said the release this week of hundreds of migrant families from government custody marked “the start of a dam breaking,” as immigrant detention centers reach capacity. At one site in Arizona, hundreds of migrants seeking asylum were released without warning or instructions on where to go, how to find relatives, or how to travel to court hearings, NBC News reported. Some of the migrants have gotten shelter, aid, and even Greyhound bus tickets from local churches, which were warned by Immigration and Customs Enforcement to expect a flood of releases. “You’ll start to see this all across the southern border soon,” said a Department of Homeland Security official. More than 12,700 parents and children were apprehended crossing the border in August, triple the number a year earlier.
