    Hello,

    I am sending two links to PBS documentaries about abuse of Mexican immigrants by the US Border Patrol.

    My wife, Mollie, and I bring donation food from Whole Foods every Thursday. I was with her last Thursday and was talking with two women who are with Casa about the above documentaries. Unfortunately I do not remember the name of either woman so am sending this to several people in hopes that it gets to the right person or persons. Please email me if you have questions cliff.wilkie@comienzos.org

    The two links follow:

    Regards,
    Cliff Wilkie
