TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - More comfortable options may soon be coming for Central America immigrant women and children waiting at a Tucson bus station.

The Arizona Daily Star reports (https://goo.gl/2kEtia) that Tucson officials are coordinating with nonprofits to set up an intake center near the downtown Tucson Greyhound Depot.

Officials say the Catholic Community Services and the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona will provide the women and children with travel bags, food, clothing and other needed supplies for their trip. They also will provide temporary housing if needed.

Tucson councilor Steve Kozachik says the city will coordinate with the charity groups.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has reportedly been leaving several hundred immigrants at a Tucson Greyhound station over the past month amid a surge immigrants suspected of entering illegally.
