Deacon Timothy Donohue, a permanent deacon of the Archdiocese of Boston, assigned to Holy Name Parish in West Roxbury, recently traveled to the US-Mexico border to witness first-hand the conditions asylum seakers are living in. The families, the majority with children, make up anywhere from 2,000-2,500 refugees who rely on donations of nonprofits from the US including food, shelter and basic living supplies for themselves and their families. Despite the majority of refugees knowing they may be unable to enter the US for various reasons, they wait at the border with hope for a brighter and safer future for their children and themselves.
