Border Encounter Episode 1: Feds, Migrants, and Samaritans

May 5, 2010

At the border wall in Nogales with traveling companions

I returned last night from four incredible days at the Arizona/Mexico border convinced that the immigrant question is a historic test of the church’s fidelity to the gospel in our time.

This first of three posts features 25 photographs from the journey — from landing in Tucson to see a massive march against the outlandish new state immigration law, to painful stories from just-deported migrants at the Mexico border, to the highest-intensity policing I’ve ever witnessed in the U.S., to a serendiptious encounter with six migrants crossing the desert, to “Samaritan” volunteers crossing divides to provide hospitality and save lives.
