(Washington, D.C.) November 22, 2012 — The Ignatian News Network met with Fr. Sean Carroll, S.J., the Executive Director of the Kino Border Initiative. Fr. Carroll, a California Jesuit, discusses the ways KBI helps improve the state of being for displaced migrants in Nogales, Ariz. and Nogales, Soñora, Mexico.

The Kino Border Initiative provides direct assistance to men, women and children who have been deported from the U.S. to Mexico. Deportees who are citizens of Mexico are usually sent via bus to border crossings from California to Texas. 

The KBI offers two major forms of direct assistance to returning immigrants. The first is meal facility, the Aid Center for Deported Migrants, where migrants can receive a solid, warm meal, and clothing. KBI's second program for migrants in Nogales, Sonora, is the Nazareth House for Deported Women, a short-term shelter for unaccompanied women who are particularly vulnerable to exploitation.
