Group helps immigrants through shared experiences

"We're starting with our southwest Kansas initiative. Given the high number of immigrants that live in this part of the state, it just makes sense for us to start here," Minjarez said. "Plus, I went to high school in Ulysses and I graduated from Garden City Community College, so I have a personal connection to the area."
