Pray for the Children

Thank you for joining us for the Children Seeking Asylum March.

Catholic Extension is proud to partner with the Kino Border Initiative, a ministry funded by our donors, to host and livestream this important event.

Kino Border Initiative accompanies migrants monthly to the U.S.-Mexico border gate to request asylum in front of an immigration officer. Once there, they livestream each migrant’s story to raise awareness for unjust asylum policies.
