Migrants stranded across county amid winter travel chaos
Dozens of migrants were left at bus stations across San Diego County on Friday by federal officials as extreme weather continues to impact travel and flight operations nationwide.
As migrants made their way through San Diego International Airport, canceled flights forced them to find local accommodations while waiting to sort out their travel itineraries.
The high volume of flight cancellations combined with a large number of asylum seekers in need of shelter meant that many outreach organizations could not respond to the increased demand for shelter services on short notice.
As a result, many migrants were dropped off at bus stations by Customs and Border Protection officials.
