next we visited the migrant center, which began to see up to 100 people deported each day in March.

Every Tuesday evening at 5:15 we gather to remember those who died crossing our local desert area. This day we prayed with about 75 young people from all over the country.
Day 1 activities ended with a silent watching of the sunset at the end of the prayer vigil.
