Immigrants who cross the border between Mexico and the United States are often subject to harsh weather conditions, treacherous terrain, and lack of supplies necessary to survive the trip. Because of this danger, human rights groups have been especially paramount in the assistance and protection of immigrants crossing the border into the United States. Groups such as Humane Borders, No More Deaths, and the Samaritans aid immigrants in the desert in order to prevent the high amount of immigrant deaths that have occurred since restrictions of border crossings have been greatly increased. On the Mexican-American Border Mini Term, we were able to meet with these groups to understand not only the issues with immigration in the United States, but also what people are doing to fix it. Through the analysis of these three groups, we seek to establish why these groups formed, what they do to protect immigrants, and how their work will implement change in the immigration system and how immigrants are treated in the future.
