Formed in March 2011, the Southern Border Communities Coalition brings together 60 organizations from San Diego, CA to Brownsville, TX.
As the government continues to pour more and more resources into the U.S. Border Patrol without providing appropriate accountability and oversight, border communities have borne the brunt of these policies, which have adversely impacted businesses, our residents’ human rights, the environment and international relations.
Southern Border organizations and community leaders have come together to:
Ensure that border enforcement policies and practices are accountable and fair, respect human dignity and human rights, and prevent the loss of life in the region.
Promote policies and solutions that improve the quality of life in border communities.
Support rational and humane immigration reform policies affecting the border region.
