East is East (SION Conference Part III)

East is East (SION Conference Part III)

There is something you can do to stop the most heinous abuses of illegal immigrants, and it can be as simple as making a phone call.

Immigration and Borders News Roundup

Today’s roundup is chock full of news, including a laughable attempt by the Mexican government to demonstrate its bona fides on border security by arresting a potential border-crosser from an infamous family.
