In this narrative Mr. Raul shares that he emigrated from the city of Chihuahua, Mexico to Los Angeles, California. Since he was driving without a valid driver’s license, after being the recipient of several tickets, Raul was deported in 2003. Once in Tijuana, Mexico, Raul was living in shelters and quickly discovered that there was a great need and shortage of housing for immigrants. Raul and his wife established a men’s shelter, which has been providing support and services to immigrants for the past 8 years.
