Demand Border Patrol stop destroying humanitarian aid

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.

A letter to our community and a call to action

Last Monday night, more than 50 members of the No More Deaths community gathered in a church in Tucson.

Take action to stop it

Take action: Support Rosa Robles in sanctuary in Tucson

Dear No More Deaths supporters,

Three months ago we came to you and asked for your support to stop the pending deportation of Daniel Neyoy Ruiz.  Thanks to you, Daniel is Scan_20140812at home with his family in Tucson, Arizona.

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.

In solidarity,

Sarah Launius, No More Deaths volunteer
