My Visit with Cubans

Last week when I crossed the border at Brownsville to talk with migrants, the group I encountered were from Cuba, not Central America. They had flown into Mexico from Cuba legally and had made their way to the Texas border.


As a whole Cubans at the border are wealthier than the people from Central America and Cubans have been accustomed to getting favored treatment over the years from American authorities. I was told Cubans are also more aggressive than others and aid destined for the really poor from Central America at the border often ends up in the hands of Cubans. Several groups visited from the United State and the other groups encountered people from other countries.


Texas Impact is putting together a folder of our experiences. Perhaps someday I can share with the congregation what I learned at the event.
