For a look at the other end of that pipeline, Bishop Gene speaks with Sharita Gruberg, Policy Analyst at the Center for American Progress, who has just returned from a trip to the Artesia Detention Center in New Mexico. Sharita will share what and whom she saw at the Artesia detention center. She has detailed descriptions on the detainees’ living conditions and the reception they got on their entry to the United States. She also observed the resources available to the children trying to navigate the difficult process of asking for refugee status and asylum. Finally, she’ll delve into how America can respond with compassion to these children, and what she would say to the members of Congress who argue that we should just “send ‘em back.”
