Driven by poverty and gang violence in their home country, thousands of Haitian immigrants have converged on the U.S. southern border.
Last month, pictures circulated of Haitians being chased by border patrol agents on horseback. The photos produced outrage in the U.S. and beyond.
The U.S.-Mexico border has long been a source of political tension, but Claudia Adame with e3 Partners says that’s not the whole picture. God is working in amazing ways among the immigrant communities.
She tells of one community in the city of Reynosa, where e3 Partners works with refugees from countries like Columbia, Venezuela, Honduras, and Haiti. “What I saw was a peaceful camp. People were taking care of each other, even taking turns doing night watch to just keep things safe. And for the most part, the city of Reynosa has responded very generously.”
