Kino Border Initiative
These men are about to be served a hot meal, roughly at lunch time, by volunteers of the Jesuit run kitchen. This is likely to be their only meal, and certainly the only hot meal of the day. These individuals have already attempted at least one crossing of the U.S. border, been caught and deported to Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, in order to be eligible for this program. This is only a short term solution, as they may only remain 5 days, before they must cross again, or go home. Many of these individuals may actually be from Honduras, or other Central and South American countries, and are in fact just as "illegal" in Mexico, without proper documents, as they are in the United States.
