RECORD NUMBERS OF RELEASES!
AIDNW volunteers have been serving as many as 30 released detainee guests each day. Large numbers of immigrants requesting asylum are being brought to Tacoma's NW ICE Processing Center from the southern border, given a court date and released after a short time.
Our volunteers are working in shifts at the AIDNW Welcome Center from 1 to 7 PM Monday through Friday and sometimes later, helping guests plan travel all over the country to reach their family members.
This uptick in guests is straining our resources, and ICE has told us that this level of releases is expected to continue indefinitely.
We ask for your support. We are looking for:
- Additional volunteer drivers
- Welcome Center volunteers
- Monetary contributions.

It takes a village! We are grateful for all of our community support.
