April 18, 2019 Club Meeting
Topic: Responding to the Humanitarian Crisis at Our Border
What is this crisis at our border?
Who are these people at our border?
Where are they from?
Why are they here?
Are they dangerous?
What can we do?
What is the Rapid Response Network?
San Diego is the largest land border crossing in the world and has been a highly active location for deportations, rights violations, and abuse by Customs Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Families are arriving in our community in desperate need. They have traveled hundreds, if not thousands of miles to flee violence, suffering, and persecution in their homelands in search of a safer, better life.
Immigration authorities are releasing these families after being vetted by Homeland Security in San Diego and giving them the right to live in the U.S. while they await the outcome of their application for asylum.
Come join the discussion with Katia Ortiz, Volunteer Coordinator with San Diego Rapid Response Network. All are invited.
