A caravan is headed to our Southern border, and it’s filled with criminals and terrorists bent on invading our country. At least that’s what the highest level of our government is telling us. But is that the real story? Tonight, we’ll get a report from the front lines of the immigrant surge that started four years ago. We’re joined by Sister Norma Pimentel, the executive director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley in Brownsville, Texas who helped organize their response to the 2014 surge of Central Americans seeking asylum in the United States. Sister Pimentel is a 2018 Hispanic Heritage Award recipient, an award established by the Reagan administration, and the 2018 recipient of the Laetare Medal at Notre Dame University’s commencement ceremony honoring her work with migrants and refugees, the highest and oldest award given to a U.S. Catholic each year. Sister Pimentel joins us to talk about her experiences working with refugees and seeing God himself in them.
Witnessing someone being treated as a human being for the first time in a long time.
A challenge to overcome your fear and get involved.
A message for young Latinos and other youth.
