Al Otro Lado

Between 2009 and 2013, over half a million parents of US Citizen children were deported. Every year, thousands of families are separated in the United States, through mass arrests and deportation. This often occurs suddenly, leaving families little time to plan for the enormous changes wrought by separation. The volunteer network at Al Otro Lado, provides legal orientation and other support services to indigent deportees, migrants, and refugees in Tijuana, Mexico and Los Angeles, California to reunite families on both side of the border.
