HARLINGEN — Regina and David Bakala were living quiet lives in Milwaukee several years ago when immigration officials suddenly showed up at their door.
The agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement were there to take Regina Bakala into custody for deportation to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Her ordeal up to this point and afterward, as well as that of her husband, is the subject of the book “Rescuing Regina” by Sister Josephe Marie Flynn.
La Posada Providencia in San Benito is presenting Flynn and her book tonight at 6 p.m. at the Harlingen Cultural Arts Center, 576 ‘76 Drive. Admission is $5 and is part of La Posada’s new fundraising effort, “Champions for a New Beginning.” … Click here to read more on the Valley Morning Star’s website.
