Federal immigration authorities drop off busloads of Central American migrants daily in San Bernardino and the Coachella Valley, where a local church is picking up the slack. Also, Greyhound buses are filling a need for migrants traveling throughout the U.S. to see their families. And while Democrats have a supermajority and bills waiting to move forward, they haven't accomplished much on affordable housing.
