Showdown in the Sonoran Desert

This chapter highlights three Mexican Sisters of the Eucharist who run a soup kitchen for deported migrants in Nogales, Mexico. The soup kitchen, part of a larger initiative of the Jesuit Refugee Service, was opened in 2008 due to the unprecedented number of deportees, which was the result of heightened U.S. border enforcement measures. The work of the Sisters, who tirelessly tend to hundreds of wounded and hungry migrants daily, serves as a window into the crisis of migrant suffering at the U.S.–Mexico border, as well as an example of how the biblical tradition of radical hospitality is being played out by religious groups and individuals there.
