It only took a few minutes in a Tucson park before the three young brothers went off running, exploring the vast stretches of grass, sprinting to distant playground equipment.
After about 10 months of living in migrant shelters and rented rooms in Nogales, Sonora, dodging neighborhood mafiosos, the 4- to 8-year-old boys were free. It fulfilled Walter Jerezano, their father, to see that the sacrifices they’d made since fleeing violent attacks and threats in Honduras last year were not in vain.
To my eyes, Jerezano, his wife Mabel Rápalo and their boys Walter, Axel and Brayan serve as an antidote to the border-related anger circulating in political campaigns. They’re a vibrant family who could contribute to our society if given a chance.
