Californian Pastor Gives Shelter to Undocumented Immigrants
Pastor Gomez of Oakland, California, brings comfort and peace amidst troublesome transition periods for undocumented immigrants. In the event ICE detention center release these immigrants, they often have nowhere to go — lost, desperate, and frightened. Gomez moonlights as a local motel manager and rents the motel rooms for the immigrants at his own expense, where they are given at least one night of comfortable rest before moving on in their journey.
Immigrants whom Gomez have taken under his own hospitality share their stories — their struggles, their worries, and their dreams for a better and more stable future. Many thanks to The Atlantic for allowing their voices to be heard in this video.
