The Pima County Board of Supervisors is set to vote on offering Casa Alitas, a nonprofit program that offers short-term shelter to migrants seeking asylum, a lease at their July 22 Special Meeting. The meeting was called for the sole purpose of approving a $100 annual lease for the County’s Juvenile Justice facility.

County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry proposes to turn over three units in the facility to Catholic Community Services to house their shelter and processing program which will provide services including living space to 300 migrants and about 50 volunteers per shift.

Catholic Community Services of Southern Arizona oversees Casa Alitas which provides transitional housing which allows the migrants time to make arrangements with friends, families, or cartel organizations for future travel, housing, and employment.

AGENDA: Cooperative Agreement for the Provision of Humanitarian Services with Catholic Community Services to Provide Respite, Shelter and to Arrange Final Transportation for Legal Asylum Seekers Turned Over to Catholic Community Services by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the US Border Patrol at Units 700, 800 and 900 of the Juvenile Justice Complex

According to Huckelberry, the County will provide building maintenance, operating, utility, food and laundry costs and will seek reimbursement from the Federal government through humanitarian aid grants and programs. Pima County has applied for a humanitarian aid grant from the Department of Homeland Security that would cover the operating costs of the facility. It is unclear why Pima County and not Catholic Community Services is seeking the federal assistance.

DID YOU KNOW: In 2016, “figures available on the USASpending.gov website show the USCCB (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) garnering more than $91 million for refugee resettlement programs, more than $202 million going to Catholic Charities, which also serves refugees, and the Boston-based ICMC (International Catholic Migration Commission) getting more than $17 million in government funds stipulated entirely for U.S. refugee resettlement, according to Lifesitenews.com

The number of migrants passing through Pima County has soared from approximately 50 a day to over 200 a day.

The facilities for the migrants do not have locks on the doors, but does have televisions in lounges. The facility will provide services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.



  1. Migrants have televison and lounges
    Illegals get tv to lounge around all day getting free food health care and laugh at us Good hard working Tax paying legal Americans while homeless Americans die daily on Streets etc
    Psst no locked doors means more babies on the way..
    ADI its Illegals Invaders not migrants migrants work
    These break our laws..
    Next Headlines For Tuscon: will be “Crime rises in Tuscon ,,They Blame Trump ..

    Really I think they are White haters,, Racists against White Americans
    Yes i said that They hate whites

  2. Sanctuary City, County and State are ILLEGAL by the Arizona Constitution. If passed it is illegal and due for HUGE fight! Why do we have to pay for them? California is a Sanctuary State so send them all there, since half of California is already here in Tucson!

  3. Well So show Up on The 22 to tell them how you feel
    If Tuscon does become a Sanctuary City Beware youll all be paying more Taxs
    I hope they do Not allow it
    Love the line (Invaders) perfect word illegal invaders
    Breaking laws in Tuscon
    Shame on Gov Ducey
    He does have the power to stop this

  4. Catholic Community Services should be seeking repayment for the money spent housing the asylum seekers, not the county taxpayers. Furthermore, juvenile detainees must be kept separate from our “visitors” by both sight and sound. That is going to take Pima County taxpayer money to redesign the detention center. We will never be completely reimbursed for the money spent on assisting Catholic Community Services. Funny how the separation of church and state only works when they want it to. Basically, the taxpayers will be subsidizing a religious organization who is getting paid enormous amounts of money by the Federal government to house and maintain these people but they will only be out $100 a year.

    • Not only is Catholic Community Services getting a taxpayer handout for the upkeep of these invaders, they are largely responsible for these migrants being in Tucson in the first place. How do you think the hordes managed the trip from the various countries they come from? Yup, groups like Catholic Charities, and others most likely funded largely by the Globalist cabal which include Soros, etal.

      • Don’t forget Lutheran Charities is in on the scam as well as the Catholics. Funds come from UN & Soros. It’s sickening. I wouldn’t go to one of those “shelters” for fear of being infected with a disease. I’ll NEVER VOTE DEMOCRAT AGAIN! I don’t think there’s a good one in the whole bunch that cares about borders & citizens. stand up folks and let the BOS pile of crap – except Ally – know how you feel. Facts and figures only.

  5. As I understand, the COT had three full-time cops at the monastery (as the citizen’s suffer with 1980s police staffing levels). Will the Sheriff have to supply Deputies here as well? My point is if these people are so down-trodden why do we need law enforcement to watch over them? I heard Kozachek say they are just peaceful people looking for a better life and it’s the current Administration’s fault for not doing enough in Central America…ya right Steve!!
