LOS ANGELES, June 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The faces of tens of thousands of people encamped in a stinking tent city with little food tell a sad story, as a humanitarian disaster unfolds around them. Attracted to the border from across the world by a false hope of salvation, these people are now stuck.
Los Angeles-based "Churches in Action" group, supported by American humanitarians, transported food supplies to one camp in Tijuana, Mexico, accompanied by NewsBlaze writer, Nurit Greenger. Greenger's story was a followup to her 2019 visit.

"I was heartbroken to see so many innocent unaccompanied minor children lured to the border by U.S. policy," said John Pierce, a free speech lawyer who defends people's constitutional rights and visited the tent city to support the work of Churches in Action.
"I have visited Mexico delivering provisions to Tijuana shelters for three decades, but this is the worst migration crisis I've seen," noted Bishop Juan Carlos Mendez, founder and president of Churches in Action. "Sadly, people in need were given false hope and now their suffering is devastating."
"We do whatever it takes to be there for those in need, no matter who they are or where they come from, because we are all one," said Maytal, on behalf of the Tikun Olam Jewish community that provided the food.
Nurit Greenger spoke to many people in the foul-smelling tent city, all seeking a chance at the American dream. Her NewsBlaze story documents the horrors of the camp as well as the good people and local officials keeping the men, women and children alive.
"The story of Churches in Action and their partners who work to provide food and supplies for these misplaced people is heartwarming," journalist Nurit Greenger says, "but the bigger stories are written in the faces of those who risk everything for a chance of freedom in the USA."
