Local, state, and federal officials in San Antonio spoke out last night against the punitive federal practice of separating asylum-seeking families at the U.S.-Mexico border. They were joined in front of a crowd of hundreds by the director of RAICES (Refugee and Immigration Center for Education and Legal Services), which operates a variety of refugee-assistance programs (See flyers below). Juan Mancias, tribal chair, of the Carrizo-Comecrudo Nation brought an indigenous perspective to the current crisis by alluding to the long practice of migration through the region by native peoples.
