Methodists offer solidarity to Cubans stuck at border

Anaivis Machado, a psychologist, and her 3-year old son Dario sit in the Plaza Benito Juarez in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. They left their home in Santa Clara, Cuba, bound for the United States, but are now waiting close to the U.S.-Mexico border, caught in limbo by the elimination in January of the infamous “wet foot, dry foot” policy of the United States. They are not allowed to enter the U.S. yet don't want to return to Cuba. Photo by Paul Jeffrey.
