Having lived in McAllen, Texas, Dr. John Tarwater is no stranger to the border crisis and understands that the immigrants living in the detainment centers need to be shown compassion.


Illegal immigration is at the forefront of today’s news and political debates, and for many Americans that’s all it is, talk. But for those living in cities by the Mexican border, immigration becomes much more real.

For years, Dr. John Tarwater, assistant professor of finance at Cedarville University, lived and worked in the McAllen, Texas, a predominantly hispanic community along the U.S.-Mexico border. He served as vice president at Rio Grande Bible Ministries and the ministry’s college, El Seminario Bíblico Rio Grande.
