The Impact of Your Support: Seeking Safety at the Border

The IRC provides critical support to asylum seekers on both sides of the U.S. southern border. That includes providing warm meals, clothing, transitional shelter and travel coordination to more than 8,000 asylum seekers released from U.S. government detention since June 2018. We are also working alongside partners to respond to asylum seekers’ urgent needs. In Mexico, the IRC is providing support to migrants and asylum seekers from the southern to the northern borders and in between. This support includes prevention and response to gender-based violence; access to critical information through InfoDigna, a multi-channel information platform; prevention and mitigation of COVID-19; economic recovery and development; and child protection services. We also identify needs and refer cases to local service providers where appropriate. For individuals who choose to stay in Mexico, the IRC provides cultural integration support.

With your generous donation, the IRC is supporting local partners in Mexico to aid migrants and asylum seekers stuck in border towns. We are supporting programs that work with women and girls who have experienced violence by increasing access to services such as medical care. We are also working with local partners on a COVID-19 public health awareness campaign along with psychosocial support in shelters at the Mexico-U.S. border in Ciudad Juárez. The project will directly benefit 17 shelters hosting approximately 3,000 people and reach an additional 10,000 in surrounding host communities. The initiative includes sessions on the transmission of COVID-19, protective and preventive measures, including identification of at-risk groups, signs and symptoms of COVID-19, where to access help and support, reinforcement of public health best practices and the distribution of hygiene kits.

What else can you do to help?

Advocate! A new bill introduced in the Senate would prevent the Biden Administration from ending the policy, known as Title 42, that denies people at the U.S.-Mexico border their legal right to asylum. Take action today to tell your senators to oppose this harmful legislation by clicking here.
