TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A group providing support for immigrants dropped off at the Greyhound bus station in Tucson by federal officials is moving its intake station to an undisclosed location in the southern Arizona city.

Project Mariposa's facility in the bus station's waiting room provides food, donated clothing and other items to immigrants.

The new site will offer an outdoor fenced-in play area, more comfortable seating, a kitchenette and a more private setting for meetings with consulate officials.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that the site is being provided by Catholic Community Services but that the location is not being disclosed.

City Councilman Steve Kozachik says that's because of protests at some places where immigrants are being housed.

Kozachik is involved in the project.
