“Casa”, which opened in February 2019, is one of a handful of Tijuana shelters catering to a group that includes trans women, gay men and mothers traveling alone with children — among the most vulnerable and endangered refugee populations, according to a 2017 Amnesty International Report
I like our pope approach to these issues. (At the time of this writing, his name is Francisco I, or Francis.). His posture starts by remembering our human partticipation in the first place. Being humans, most of us care about others, our brothers, to say it this way. Pope is human too, not to dictate or punish parishioners, but to turn to God, who is the one capable of mitigating these scenarios.
“‘Mommy, I have bad news for you,’” one of the girls at the shelter, Elizabeth, 13 🧒🏻, from Honduras, recalled telling her mother on the phone. “‘Don’t cry, but Mexican immigration caught me.’”.
For children migrants, the journey north is not an easy one, and the ones who brave it have to grow up fast.

And if Elizabeth had made it across the river into Texas, her life would be different now. Even if apprehended by United States officers, she would have been released to her mother (who works in the US) and given a court date to present her asylum case.
