Foreword by Virgilio P. Elizondo. Afterword by Gustavo Gutiereez. A Catholic priest presents a first-hand account of his ministry to the poor and desperate who come across the southern border of the United States in search of a better life. Groody spoke with immigration officials, 'coyote' smugglers, and immigrants in detention centers and those working in the fields. The picture that emerges starkly contrasts with the negative stereotypes about Mexican immigrant. As new, unread copy in dust jacket.
