People who come to the United States seeking asylum and refuge have their faces pressed up against the glass of something they want with every cell of their beings.

Susan Yarbrough, a retired U.S. immigration judge, recently moved to Austin and is now a first-year seminarian at Meadville Lombard Theological School.
