The number of Central American and Mexican migrants crossing the southern border into the United States has slowed to a trickle, but in terms of helping families in need, Catholic groups at the border know there is still much to be done.

This week on the podcast, we visit the US-Mexico border in El Paso and talk to bishops, priests, laypeople, non-Catholics and everyone in between about what the need is at the border and what people of faith are doing to help. 

And stick around, because we also cover a side of the immigration debate not often acknowledged: what happens when undocumented immigrants feel a call to the priesthood?
