Shelters Step In to Help Families Seeking Asylum

Inside Casa Alitas in Tucson.

Many immigrants, especially families, are released and helped by nonprofits and churches with shelter and travel to their next destination. Nancy Montoya profiles one of these groups based in Tucson. Over the last two years, Casa Alitas has helped 4,700 immigrants. It's run by Catholic Community Services of Southern Arizona. Casa Alitas volunteers and workers are in touch with ICE officers tasked with bringing families to the shelter.
