NCR columnist and blogger on this site was interviewed this week  and asked about her thoughts on U.S./Mexican border issues and on her poetry, two of her favorite subjects.
About the border, she tells the interviewer: "At least one person a day dies trying to cross the U.S./Mexico border. There is a human remains project founded in order to connect DNA and hope to make matches with relatives back in Mexico. The situation is very dire. ... We’re seeing growing numbers of women and children who are among those dead."
