The city is starting to intervene because of the daily arrival of hundreds of immigrants who are putting a strain on non-profit organization resources such as the Annunciation House according to the group's director Rubén García. As it turns out, García says this time the park idea was discarded after he succeeded in arranging for 150-or so immigrants in the overflow to stay at a nearby motel.
