James Pace of Good Neighbor Settlement House joined us from near the border in Brownsville, TX to tell us about what’s happening with migrants at the border and the humanity crisis there.  Jim is a collector of stories and he read us some of the personal stories of the asylum seekers, including why they left their dangerous homes to take the dangerous journey to the US and what happened after they arrived at the U.S.  You can sign up to receive stories Jim has collected each week in your e-mail in-box and/or receive a package via snail mail of a booklet of 48 interviews by e-mailing Jim at:  pacejwpace@aol.com.  At the bottom of this post is one of the migrant interviews sent by Jim.

The Passionate Life: Creating Vitality & Joy at Any Age


Below is one of the more recent of the interviews collected by Jim Pace from asylum seekers at the border:

Our family is from Quito, Ecuador with five members, namely…….

           Luis Soto, age 36  with 13 years of education
          Lysia Quishpilemo, 35 with 13 years of education
          Leandro 15, Antony 9, and Miller, 5 months
     I am a man of many talents!  I am a truck driver, brick mason, electrician, plumber,
    and house painter.  Quito is a city of much violence and lack of security.  The “pandillas”
   (gangs) are running wild; the police are no help because they are on the pandillas’ payroll.
   One pandilla wanted me to join them and sell drugs, threatening me if I didn’t join.  That’s
   when I decided to flee with my family.
   On September 4, 2019 we flew to Cancun, Mexico, and then flew on to Monterrey, MX.
   From Monterrey we bused to Reynosa, arriving September 14.  We stayed in a private
   home for four days, and on September 19, 2019, we crossed the bridge to McAllen, Texas
   and were taken to the Border Patrol/Immigration headquarters. We were  there for five days;
   the entire time was spent in the “hielera” (cold box). Having heard of the extreme cold of
   the hielera from previous talking among fellow asylum seekers in Reynosa, we immediately
   protested because of our son’s heart condition for which we were going to New York city
   for an immediate operation!!!!!  The guard’s reply was “SORRY, EVERYONE GOES
   THROUGH THE HIELERA…..NO EXCUSES!!!!!  You can imagine the fear and helplessness
    my wife and I felt. Being Evangelical Christians we knew that the Lord Jesus would never
    have allowed that, and we could only have faith that God would protect our baby Miller.
    Miller came through that inhumane ordeal OK,  and we were allowed to send him and his two
    brothers to New York to live with my sister-in-law in Queens.  We were returned  to  
    Matamoros, MX, where we stayed in a tent city for 3&1/2 months.  The volunteers from
    Team Brownsville were wonderful in providing 2 hot meals daily, clothes,shoes,blankets,
    rain gear, and educational activities for adults, youth, and children.  At 6:40 AM today, the 15th of January, we crossed the bridge to      Brownsville, TX.  Now we are here a Good Neighbor Settlement House and will fly to NYC tonight in time to be present for
   Miller’s operation at 7 AM tomorrow!!!!!!!!!

The operation wad successful!!!!!!!
*****”Hielera translated literally means “frozen room”.
