Mi Familia - RELEASED on WHO CARES
Immigration, Emigration, or Migration? Three phenomena with one question – Why? Why do people uproot their lives and leave their homeland to live in another country? As witnessed by a missionary in Nogales – the answer is always the same – Family.
"Mi Familia" is on the soon-to-be-released Who Cares album! Here's a vid.
Mi Familia (David G Smith/Tom Favreau)
Another migrant stuck in Nogales
Shanty town Mexican side
Captured crossing the border
A journey many have tried
I serve them food in this comedor
Some of them I know by name
When I ask them why they keep risking their lives, the answer is always the same
Mi Familia, Mi Familia
My sisters, my brothers, the babies their mothers
They freeze at night crossing the desert
Drown in the Rio Grande
Violence and poverty chase them
On their run for the promised land
Everyone that comes thru here
Has a story and picture to show
Of desperate lives framing hopeful eyes
Telling me why they still go
Their stories tear me apart
But the children will break your heart
I feed them every day
Because all of them are
