Recent events in U.S. immigration policy have driven public attention to the southern border with Mexico. Family separations, same-day deportations, and challenges to due process have major consequences for the lives of thousands of people in both Mexico and the U.S., especially in the San Diego-Tijuana region.

On August 7, join us in following the footsteps of migrants as they are sent across the border to Tijuana, and hear from those that are working to support them through these challenging first days, months, and even years.

  • Learn more about what happens to migrants after deportation.
