DESERTED: The Human Rights Crisis On Our Soil

The remains of at least 6,000 migrants have been found in U.S. desert land since U.S.-Mexico border policies were implemented in the 1990s. Some groups estimate that for each set of remains recovered, those of 10 more people are lost to the harsh desert elements. Advocates and authorities attribute the escalating number of deaths not only to rising heat but also to ever-tightening border security forcing migrants into more remote and dangerous terrain. As we come up to United Nations’ International Migrants Day, we must recognize this human rights crisis that is taking place at our border. No matter your opinion on immigration reform, this is a crisis that all of us, as humans, are responsible for addressing – and ending. Visit Coalición de Derechos Humanos and No More Deaths for more information. Watch this video and take action to ensure that the U.S. government restores fair immigration and racial justice.

Mallika Dutt: The “war on women” is bigger than you think

Stories from around the country are revealing how recent laws such as Arizona’s SB 1070 and Alabama’s H.B. 56 are causing intense damage to families, communities and economies, with devastating consequences for immigrant women. These laws leave parents unable to protect their children. They force women to choose between the threat of an abusive husband and the threat of deportation if they call the police. They send pregnant mothers to give birth in shackles with federal agents by their side. As part of a delegation to Birmingham, Alabama with the We Belong Together campaign, Breakthrough president Mallika Dutt talks about the growing racial profiling and discrimination against immigrant communities and people of color. Watch this video and take action to ensure that the U.S. government restores fair immigration and racial justice.
