ICE arrested undocumented adults who sought to take in immigrant children

2/14/19 When migrant children cross into the U.S., they’re placed in shelters run by the Office of Refugee Resettlement. The agency then works to find sponsors, usually a parent or family member, who can take care of the children while their immigration cases are pending.
But many of these sponsors are undocumented. And in April, the refugee agency started sharing sponsor information with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The result: Nearly 200 people who came forward to sponsor children were arrested by ICE, as the San Francisco Chronicle first reported.
The latest funding agreement blocks this activity until October 1st.
