Dear All: Help migrants in trouble---doing good is good and feels good

Breitbart.com is believed to be an anti-migrants website and would not report or do good for migrants, Eritrean or otherwise. One also is puzzled why Eritrean "assylum seekers" were taken as an example of migrants clogging immigration processes in both Mexico or the U.S. by any standard.

As reported in http://www.breitbart.com/california/201 ... nd-mexico/,
In just the month of October 2017 CBP Border Patrol San Diego border sector reported apprehension of [a total of 2,379 individuals] from ....
Mexico (1,877)
Guatemala (178)
India (101)
El Salvador (76)
Honduras (54)
Nepal (31),
China (16)
Pakistan (13)
Bangladesh (12)
Eritrea (7)
Gambia (4)
Cameroon (3)
Brazil (1)
Chad (1)
Iran (1)
Nicaragua (1)
Peru (1)
Somalia (1)
"Unknown” (1)
Regardless of what the intentions of anyone talking about Eritrean migrants is, though, I urge you to give your assistance to Eritrean migrants in trouble. As one source has indicated, you could call the U.S. phone number given below to provide them with a humanitarian assistance. Thank you, and I wish you to have a Happy New Year.
Calling the hotline probably won't stop an arrest that's already in progress, but it might help stop a deportation, depending on the details of the case.
Anyone wanting to report an immigration arrest, a checkpoint or a raid to the rapid response network can call 619-536-0823. Dispatchers, who must be bilingual in English and Spanish, will take down information from the caller about the enforcement’s location and send a text to volunteer responders, asking for someone to verify what’s happening.
A responder will go to the address provided and document the situation. Responders are taught not to obstruct an arrest in any way. Instead, they observe and document in case the immigrant’s civil rights are violated.
Responders must be U.S. citizens, Calderon said, and don’t have to be bilingual.
The responder also gathers information to send the case to a team of lawyers. The legal team screens cases for those they might be able to help. Others get referrals to free or low-cost attorneys.
Getting more access to attorneys has been an issue in immigration court for years. Unlike criminal court, immigrants do not have a right to an attorney, meaning that many go through the
court system without representation.

Good point. But, we're still "number 1 in Africa ".
