Sr. Chabela of our Chaparral community was interviewed on Rompeviento TV by its General Director, Ernesto Ledesma, as the Caravan Against Fear (an immigrant advocacy group based in Northern California) was making its way to El Paso, Texas.  Simply click on the picture below to view the video.  

The interview is in Spanish.  Unfortunately, we're not able to provide captions or a translation here (sorry!).  

In English, the text on the page says:  

"Amid the growing criminalization and persecution of migrants in the United States, a refuge has emerged for them:  Casa Maria Eugenia, a center run by the Religious of the Assumption, in the colonia of Chaparral in southern New Mexico.

In the context of the Caravan Against Fear, Ernesto Ledesma (general director of Rompeviento TV) spoke with Sister Chabela, coordinator of Casa Maria Eugenia and well-known in the area, about the work of this center, the situation of migrants under the Trump government, and the actions of civil society to address the government's anti-immigrant policies."
