A very nice woman with a very unfortunate name (Dickie Davis)
She said that the Red Cross was allowed to come into the area where our group is waiting.... and that they've been fed and that "everything is just great"
Remember that Ms. Davis works for the AIRPORT and not for the government.
She said she'll call be back in about 10 minutes with a more accurate update - she's just walking into the room where they are.
We're hearing that some families are being recategorized from Category I orphans to Category II orphans. The significance of that is that Cat I orphans just have to be cleared by DHS and then they can go home with their families while Cat II orphans have to be cleared by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (which is a group used to dealing with famlies that need sponsors. They're just trying to do their jobs, but their process and laws are meant for a different group of people).
I'll post more when I hear more.
