Migrants traveling in the much-publicized caravan from Central America began arriving at the U.S. border this month, largely outside California. Just across the Arizona border in Nogales, Sonora, charities that support immigrants and deportees are also helping more asylum seekers. Arizona 360 visited a shelter run by the Kino Border Initiative to find out more about the influx.
"Our job is to welcome human beings and their dignity. See each mom and say, 'That could be me.' See a child and say, 'That could have been me.' So, identify strongly with the people we receive on a day-to-day basis," said Joanna Williams, Kino Border Initiative's director of education and advocacy.
