“It would be really sad to see organizations like [Annunciation House] not able to exist anymore because we know they do such a good part of the welcoming [of migrants]. And they’re an example that we can look to as a group of people that have always worked – no matter who’s in power in the United States, no matter what the immigration policies look like – they find a way to make it work. They find a way to serve people.”

Immigration expert Laura Collins, Director of the Bush Institute-SMU Economic Growth Initiative, weighs in on the legal battle between El Paso nonprofit Annunciation House and the state of Texas and the important role of humanitarian organizations that serve U.S.-Mexico border and migrant communities.
