Common Good Podcast

Ride Week Day 3 - Faith Groups Stretched Thin because of Inhumane Border Policies

December 8, 2021

Doug Pagitt and Dan Deitrich discuss how Border Patrol offloads asylum seekers to churches and non-profs instead of providing any level of support to those awaiting asylum hearings. Later in the hour, they are joined by Alma Ruth of Practice Mercy, a faith-based non-profit serving vulnerable women and children at the US/Mexico border.
