Mission Bite #43: Injustices for immigrants

"For a few months, I worked with a family where the mom, Wendy, was in deportation proceedings. Her husband, Geovani, had been suddenly thrust into the role of single dad and was also exposed as undocumented and was fearful. Immigrants are far from perfect, but a decision that for many of us would result in a traffic ticket, a fine, perhaps a humiliating night in jail and day in court, have life-changing consequences with the potential to destroy families and scar vulnerable children for life. That is the issue of injustice that I struggle with."
