Immigrants Being Dumped at AZ Bus Stops

    Migrants, consisting of mostly women and children, who just disembarked from a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) bus wait for a Greyhound official to process their tickets to their next destination at a Greyhound bus station in Phoenix, Arizona May 29, 2014. Local media reported that ICE had been releasing migrants who pose no security risk at Greyhound bus stations in Tuscon and Phoenix due to a lack of manpower, and those released have to make their own way to their declared U.S. destinations and are required to report to a local ICE office within 15 days.

Immigrant advocates are accusing the federal government of releasing the migrants without providing food or water on days that hit 100 degrees F, while critics argue that simply releasing migrants allows them to vanish. In a letter to President Obama, Arizona governor Jan Brewer called it "another disturbing example of a deliberate failure to enforce border security policies and repair a broken immigration system."
