USA: Only migrant-shelter church in S.California heightens security after Pittsburgh

Pastor Bill Jenkins of the Christ United Methodist Church in San Diego, leads the only «immigrant welcoming shelter in southern California» which takes in thousands of migrants crossing the Mexican border from Tijuana, footage from Wednesday shows. The Pastor says they are now at maximum capacity and even have to 'hotbed' with immigrants sharing beds and taking turns to sleep in the day or night... Еще. Even so, the church stands ready to host Central American immigrants arriving in the so-called 'migrant caravan' from Mexico. The Christ United Methodist Church has also had to heighten their security measures after the Pittsburgh massacre, for fear of a possible retaliation against immigrants due to the fiery rhetoric coming from the government regarding the migrant caravan. «I'm concerned about the safety of the people who are coming across the border. I'm concerned about people who convinced themselves that they need to shoot other people. No one has a right to do that,» stated Pastor Bill Jenkins. «We're concerned, we have heightened our security, but I don't want to say that we have given over to fear,» he added.
