Yesterday, No More Deaths, in collaboration with La Coalición de Derechos Humanos, released Interference with Humanitarian Aid: Death and Disappearance on the US–Mexico Border. This report is the second installment of a three-part report series entitled Disappeared: How US Border-Enforcement Agencies Are Fueling a Missing-Persons Crisis. In part 2, we detail the intentional destruction of over 3,000 gallons of water left out for border crossers, implicating the US Border Patrol in the majority of this destruction. We document how Border Patrol agents engage in the widespread vandalism of gallons of water left for border crossers and routinely interfere with other humanitarian-aid efforts in rugged and remote areas of the borderlands.

Last Monday night, more than 50 members of the No More Deaths community gathered in a church in Tucson. We came together to strategize on the impacts of the Trump administration’s plans to target the US undocumented community with mass deportations, to revoke DACA, and to increase border militarization. As always, we closed our meeting with a moment of silence, thinking of those who have lost their lives crossing the border. Continue reading A letter to our community and a call to action
Dear NMD supporters,
Eight months ago a courageous Tucsonan, Rosa Robles Loreto, entered into public Sanctuary at Southside Presbyterian Church in an effort to stop her pending deportation and to remain with her family and community here in Arizona. Continue reading Stand with Rosa! Eight months in Sanctuary
Hundreds of thousands of immigrants each year are dumped at the Mexico border and permanently expelled without their most basic belongings: their money, identification documents, cell phones, important phone numbers, photos and keepsakes. From the border they must find a way to travel to their place of origin in Mexico—with nothing. You can act right now to help stop this travesty. Continue reading Deportation steals. Take action to stop it
Dear NMD supporters,
In our effort to end deaths and suffering in the US–Mexico borderlands, we are increasingly called to address the factors that force so many people to make the perilous journey through the desert.

Dear No More Deaths supporters,
Just last week another community member, Rosa Robles Loreto, took sanctuary at Southside Presbyterian Church so that she could stay with her family rather than be deported. I hope that you will read Rosa’s message, learn more about her and her family, and then take action to keep her family together.
