This week we gathered a group of guys from Willoway and they played a soccer game against some people from LCCC. The game went really well, and ended up going on for so long that we didn’t even have time for English class. The one thing that happened that was both bothersome and kind of surprising was that while they were playing soccer a Border Patrol car pulled up and did a loop around us. The officer didn’t end up getting out of the car, but all of the men who were there were documented and would have been fine anyway. It was still not something that I see everyday, and I can’t help but believe that it was pretty racist.
We’re planning on playing another game next week, so hopefully it will still be fun but minus the Border Patrol!
