This Congressmember Camped in the Cold to Escort an Asylum-Seeking Honduran Mother Across Border

Nearly a month after a photo of a Honduran mother and her small children fleeing tear gas fired by U.S. Border Patrol captivated the nation, 39-year-old Maria Meza was finally admitted into the U.S. with her five children on Monday. Their asylum request is now being processed. But this came only after California Congressmembers Jimmy Gomez and Nanette Barragán intervened on behalf of Meza’s family, camping out overnight with them on the U.S. side of the border near the Otay Mesa Port of Entry between Tijuana and San Diego. DN! speaks with Congressmember Nanette Barragán, who just returned from the U.S.-Mexico border.
