Follow Up On The Children On The Border
Some may remember the story I wrote a few years back on “El Pastor” the man in Juarez, Mexico who built an asylum with his own hands and cares for those who no one else will.
Legendary author and border expert Charles Bowden says this;
“I found El Pastor when I was looking for a raped beauty queen.
I expected him to be an evangelical fraud and that the asylum he kept in the desert outside Juarez was simply a ploy used in his fundraising.
I was wrong. He is an ex street addict, ex-convict and a full time healer in a city of pain.
He sells love in a city of death, Ciudad Juarez,demonstrably the most violent city on earth.
He expects to be murdered; he prays he will not be tortured first.
He built the asylum with his own hands and his care is the only safety net for the severely mentally ill in this place of poverty.”
