Project Overview: Coalición Pro-Defensa del Migrante guarantees basic human rights to the migrant population being deported from the United States through Tijuana, B.C.. Because many of the repatriated citizens have lived in the United States for many years, they suffer from shock, confusion, and have no where to live in Mexico. The Coalición Pro-Defensa del Migrante provides social service information pamphlets, orientation, access to phones in order to connect with family, transportation to temporary homeless shelters or to their homes, as well as monitoring of human rights violations and deportation conditions.
