Immigration | United States

A short history of the sanctuary and settlement house movements and the rise of humanitarianism in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas

Once upon a time, not too long ago…

the Rio Grande Valley border was porous. Families crossed it regularly, and easily, living binational, bicultural lives. This was the era of “natural migration,” with people coming and going between work and home, and crossing from one country to the other to attend a wedding or to receive specialized medical care. Border Patrol agents ushered familiar folks through the international boundary without checking passports. They opened ports of entry when hands were needed in US fields; then waved the workers southward again, now laden with goods purchased in US stores, when the seasonal harvest was over.
