Rabbi Miriam Terlinchamp is preparing for a journey unlike one she’s ever made. On Tuesday, Terlinchamp will join more than a 100 other Jewish people and faith leaders in a pilgrimage to Tornillo, Texas to see what’s happening at the Mexico border. Close to 2,000 teenagers remain in the detention center as they await a decision on their future.
For those going to Texas, the welfare of children is more important than immigration status.
“If we are truly people of faith then we need to match what’s happening down at the border with love and faith,” Terlinchamp said. “If there’s militia and army down there then there better be as many helping loving hands too.”
