There is a lot of compassion here in the borderlands. Borderlanders are telling us that the only way to understand the complex situation is to “Come and visit. Eat the food. Talk to people.” Indeed. We spent time this morning at the Annunciation House where individuals are reunited with their families. Incredibly moving… expectant mothers from El Salvador, a father and son from Brazil, young men from across Central America.
So many people fleeing violence and disarray yet we are feeling hopeful. The folks at the Annunciation House and Kino Border Institute are doing the work of justice and reconciliation. We are humbled.
