Migrants move to former Juvenile Justice Complex

TUCSON – The Casa Alitas Shelter has officially opened and has already accepted close to 250 legal asylum seekers for shelter and humanitarian aid.

According to Pima County Officials, the Juvenile Justice Complex shelter became operational on Aug. 6.

They said the shelter has been significantly remodeled but there is still more work to be done.

Councilmember Steve Kozachik said the shelter is still relying on donations and volunteers to help get supplies for those migrants.
