The Kino Border Initiative is a Catholic binational organization that provides humanitarian aid and advocates for migrants in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico.  It's run by priests of the Society of Jesus order, also known as Jesuits, along with lay, or non clergy, staff.

 

Like Yuma, Nogales is also seeing an increase in the number of migrants encountered by Border Patrol.  

 

KAWC’s Victor Calderón spoke with the organization's executive director, Joanna Williams, about what migrants say are their reasons for making the journey to the United States border.
