Posted: June 5, 2019 June 5, 2019 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Health officials Wednesday confirmed 28 new flu cases among asylum seekers at a local migrant shelter, the most since the county began tracking a flu outbreak at the shelter last month.The spike in new cases of “influenza-like illness” at the Bankers Hill shelter operated by Jewish Family Service of San Diego follows two days of new case confirmations in the single digits. Health officials with the county’s Health and Human Services Agency have confirmed 186 flu cases since May 19.The county is currently quarantining 51 asylum seekers and migrants at hotels around the county in an attempt to stop the flu outbreak. County health officials have now screened more than 1,000 asylum seekers at the shelter for the flu since May 19.The county defines an outbreak as one person contracted an illness and a second person contracting it and showing symptoms within 72 hours. The county first announced the outbreak May 23.Federal immigration authorities announced May 17 that they would begin flying detained asylum seekers from the Rio Grande Valley in Texas to San Diego for processing at local U.S. Custom and Border Protection stations like Brown Field. Once processed, the migrants are released into the county and often end up at the Bankers Hill shelter, which offers medical care and humanitarian and legal aid.The transfers are intended to alleviate the strain on immigration agents in the Rio Grande Valley who argue they’re overwhelmed by an immigration crush at the U.S.-Mexico border. According to the Department of Homeland Security, CBP agents detained nearly 140,000 people along the border last month, the most in any month since March 2006.County officials say they plan to continue monitoring the outbreak and providing updates on new flu cases at the shelter. The county is also screening and treating people at the shelter who are not showing symptoms to prevent them from contracting the virus.

A 5,000-foot corner of the lot would accommodate homeless people who are waiting to get into more permanent housing.Board member Lex Frieden said Metro “has to have an interest” in helping the homeless since many of those people now use buses and bus stops as shelter. But people who live and work near the McKee Street facility say they’re worried about security as well as their property values.Carlos Calbillo said he’s been homeless himself but he doesn’t think the plan will really help matters as they try to revitalize the neighborhood.“For Metro which is a transportation agency, to suddenly branch out and become a provider of homeless shelters, it does not make any sense,” adds Calbillo.Metro Chairman Carrin Patman said she’s in favor of the temporary shelter, but it’s the city that will make the final decision.“We are willing to help provide a holistic solution but all of the comments considered here today ultimately have to be passed upon by the City Council,” said Patman.The City of Houston is currently under a temporary restraining order barring enforcement of its anti-camping ordinance. There’s a large homeless encampment just about a block away from the bus lot, under U.S. 59 near James Bute Park. Listen X
