Where today would Jesus give his love and attention? For Ruben Garcia, the founder and director of the Annunciation House in El Paso, TX, the answer is obvious: to the poor, the frightened, and the persecuted. Decades ago he noticed the sad stream of poor migrants fleeing abysmal conditions in Mexico and coming to the US with nothing but hope. With an exploding drug trade and its accompanying violence, the situation has gone from bad to worse; and as the urgency to flee has increased for countless Mexicans who reject the rule of the gangs, so has the difficulty to emigrate legally to the U.S. Tirelessly, and with the help of hundreds of volunteers over the years, Ruben offers temporary help, shelter and assistance to anxious refugees who have nowhere else to go.
