Food, Water, Smiles Greet Migrants Shipped To Ariz.

Still, their release, which started on Memorial Day, has drawn fierce criticism from members of Congress concerned the migrants will now disappear into the U.S. and from humanitarian groups concerned the migrants are being dumped at bus stations without food, water and other basic necessities. In response, growing numbers of community volunteers have been showing up at the bus station in Phoenix daily, handing out bottles of water, slices of pizza, burritos, hot sandwiches and other food as the migrants are dropped off. The volunteers also have set up a large aid station at one end of the bus station with tables filled with bottles of aspirin, cold medicine, tooth brushes, mouthwash, deodorant, diapers, sanitary napkins and other necessities. They also have brought in boxes of used clothing and shoes. Seydi Maricela Sequeira-Alvarenga, 23, and her children, Olvin (left) and Oliver, wait Monday at the Greyhound bus station in Phoenix. Officials say the family attempted to illegally cross into the U.S.
