"When the last drop of blood has been spilled, and the last gun has fallen silent—and I pray that will happen immediately—there must be serious international engagement with addressing the underlying causes of the conflict in Gaza, and that has to include the blockade itself because unless that happens, the risk is that in two years’ time, exactly the same thing will happen again."

Chris Gunness, spokesperson for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency

"That’s what I JUST. SAID." 

"She didn’t want me to be a stand-up comedian because she experienced so much racism and hatred coming to America in the sixties that she could just not believe that this country would accept her child. So the fact that I can be successful means to her on a very fundamental level that America somehow works, and that things are getting better in her lifetime. It’s such a beautiful thing to share."

According to CBP data, 445 immigrants died along the U.S. southwest border in 2013, many in the Rio Grande Valley sector of Texas. 

In a neglected cemetery an hour’s drive north of the Mexican border, the graves of unknown immigrants lay hidden among and beneath the marked gravestones of others.

“They’re buried throughout the cemetery,” explains Baylor University’s Lori Baker, who heads a team of more than 30 archaeologists and forensic students.

The team has unearthed a mass grave of undocumented immigrants — dozens of bodies found in an unmarked corner of the Sacred Heart Burial Park in Falfurrias, Texas, nearly 80-miles from the border.

"There’s no dignity in someone being buried in trash bags.”
