NOGALES, Mexico (CNS) In a soup kitchen just across the U.S. border, Nicole Davison sat down at a table lined with men.
There was a clatter of plates as the guests who were served dinner help clear the dishes. The guests all had been recently deported from the United States.
Davison, 19, learned that one man had been working in the U.S. for more than 20 years, and that his wife and children were at home in Scottsdale, Arizona.
A Mexican without a U.S. visa or work permit, the man was now stuck here, where he knew no one.
Its very sad, said Davison, as she and other members of a group called Kino Teens departed the comedor, the kitchen and dining hall of Centro de Atencion al Migrante Deportado (Aid Center for Deported Migrants) in Nogales, in the state of Sonora.
Kino Teens was created five years ago at Lourdes Catholic School in Nogales, Arizona, a couple of miles away on the other side of the border. The group supports the Catholic-run Kino Border Initiative, working in Mexico and the U.S. for more humane and viable migration solutions. In Mexico the initiative operates the center and a nearby shelter for deported women and children.
The Kino Teens have a three-pronged approach service, education and advocacy.
We dedicate ourselves to follow in the steps of Father (Eusebio) Kino in his example of showing solidarity with those who are in less favorable circumstances, said Gerardo Perez, a 17-year-old student.
Its a club that fits in well with the mission at Lourdes, according to Sister Barbara Monsegur, the high schools principal and a Minim Daughter of Mary Immaculate.

If these values are so commonplace amongst the Mexicans, then why isn't Mexico the greatest country on earth?
No rule of Law
No individual freedom to own property
Too much money to be made on Drug trafficking
Half-truths and lies.
Screw ‘em and shut down the border for a year or so. Let them decide whether they are American, or Mehhiccan. I’m tired of this bilingual, half-citizen bullshit.
Diane Feinstein visited Obama’s Human Pound in Nogales, AZ this week. She found that the flood of illegals was encouraged by information spread by Central American news media and the Catholic Church that there was no more deportation in the US.
Guess this KINO group will be out of business soon .and so will the U.S.A.
WoC Public Relations Services asks.. why just victims of the United States' evil anti-immigrant laws. What about all the other victims of the U.S.? So WoCPRS sends this PR out for free to all media.
Student group asks for some laws against theft be suspended for the unfortunate . . .
A father sits down for his noontime meal in county jail.. his family is alone on Thanksgiving Day. The man was now stuck here, where he knew no one. All he wanted was a turkey for his family's Thanksgiving and a flat screen HD TV to watch Thanksgiving Day football but both are expensive . . . why must the "haves" enforce their laws against obvious victims of America, students ask. The students have lobbied Republicans and Democrats alike for laws and enforcement policies that wont divide families . . . .
” laws and enforcement policies that wont divide families . . . .”
The “laws and enforcement policies that wont divide families . . . .” already exist. The illegal immigrants refuse to respect the existing “laws and enforcement policies, and choose to divide their own families by putting themselves and their families in places they have no right to be in.
WE are a Nation Of LAW.
dont like it dont come here!!
Boo frickin' hoo. He was here illegally, and now he's finally been deported. That's the correct price for being an ILLEGAL ALIEN, at least for now until Barky gets around to issuing another EO.
If he's so concerned about his wife (dollars to doughnuts another illegal) and kids, he can make arrangements to have them shipped to his current location and then he will have no more reason to whine.
My only regret is that it took 20 years to get rid of him. I have NO sympathy for his being in a situation of his own creation.
