A Salvadorean, a "child of Christian pastors who witnessed the gang murder of his sister" was turned away, as well as 124 other cases according to Human Rights First's latest report.

These asylum-seekers were unlawfully turned away at ports of entry into the U.S. This not only violates our own Refugee Act of 1980, but also international treaty commitments to #humanrights.

This is does not need to be a conversation about politics, but moreover asking for accountability from all our representatives.

I've teamed up with One World Play Project and the San Jose Earthquakes to get soccer balls to Pastor Daniel Pacheco's 46 teams in San Pedro Sula, Honduras! This is the perfect opportunity to help!

Our goal is to raise 42 new, durable soccer balls for the team. I know we can beat that. We want to keep kids playing, and deter them from getting caught up in gang violence in a particularly vulnerable region of the world.

How does it work? It's easy! Follow the link to buy one/give one of the soccer balls or just give!

More than 70 generous souls helped raise $5,000 for a pastor who is laboring--& risking his life--to bring peace in what has been the most dangerous neighborhood in Honduras. He and others are reducing homicides there--and helping cut in half children who feel forced to flee for the U.S.
SO MUCH GOOD has come of donations. He fixed a dilapidated pick-up truck so he can safely ferry children to anti-violence programs, bought a small car to help him roam the city & get furniture contracts, and put youth to work making closets.
Pastor Danny needs $1000 in carpentry tools to put a dozen more youngsters to work. And, $2,000 to convert an abandoned house ransacked by gangs into a youth outreach center.
Can you give? Help ensure children don't have to make the horrific journey I wrote about in Enrique's Journey? Please share! https://www.gofundme.com/2hfvbuk

Still love doing journalism--and how it looks in print! Read some good news for a change. If his story in today's NYT moves you, help Pastor Daniel Pacheco with whatever you can give here: https://www.gofundme.com/2hfvbuk

Please share with friends & family my latest in the New York Times. Yes, we can make places like Honduras safer and reduce unlawful migration. This is good news: a win for the U.S., a win for Honduras. This will be the front page of the Sunday opinion section!!
