Mi Familia - Video Release
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 David's Who Cares album! It landed #1 on RMR's Alternative Folk Chart. Here's the 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
