Migrant Caravan

Friends and family, we are asking that you find it in your heart to donate a few dollars to help the thousands of people that are part of several caravans making their way to the United States seeking asylum. (Thousands are already at the Mexico-US border) As many of you know, the majority of these are people from Honduras, but have also been joined by many from El Salvador and Guatemala, who are trekking thousands of miles, many of them on foot, in hopes of escaping poverty & violence in their countries to find a better life for their families. They are in dire need of food, clothing, medical and legal services. La Coalicion de Migrantes Mexicanos is organizing several trips to Tijuana throughout the next few weeks to deliver these items. We want to make clear that we are asking for financial donations because there have been several instances where border agents have not let material donations be taken across the border. We will instead use the money to buy all the items needed at either Costco or Sam's Club in Tijuana to avoid those issues. 

We'd like to note that there have been thousands of posts being circulated with negative anecdotes and experiences regarding the people that are part of the caravan. It is incredibly dangerous for us to take those incidents and apply them to the rest of the thousands of asylum seekers heading our way. We cannot and will not generalize based on some negative incidents. 

Thank you,

The Coalition of Mexican Migrants

A nuestra familia, amigos y, a quien desee sumarse,  hoy les hacemos un llamado para que,  si de corazón les nace,   apoyen  donando algunos dólares,  para ayudar a las miles de personas que conforman  las  varias caravanas enfiladas hacia  Estados Unidos en busca de asilo ( miles de ellas  ya localizadas en la frontera México -EE. UU.). Como ustedes saben,  estas personas provienen mayormente de Honduras, pero incluye personas de El Salvador  y Guatemala,  recorriendo, la mayoría de ellos a pie;  miles de millas, en el intento de escapar de la violencia y  pobreza de sus países y con la esperanza  de encontrar una vida mejor para sus familias.

Ellos requieren con urgencia: ropa, comida y medicinas,  que se les pueden proveer. 
Han habido varias instancias donde los agentes en la frontera no dejan pasar cosas materiales, por esta razón, utilizaremos las donaciones para comprar estas cosas directamente  en tiendas y supermercados de Tijuana. 

Ayúdennos cooperando y difundiendo nuestra petición, y DESMINTIENDO, de ser posible, las calumnias y distorsiones qué sobre el éxodo  se ciernen,  dañando a quienes sólo motiva la esperanza. Ellos estan cansados, traen  de por sí la pena de dejar el terror pero también  sus amores y su tierra. Es humano comprender, su vulnerable situación. 

Gracias, 

Coalición de Migrantes Mexicanos

We made our first trip yesterday to visit the caravan. Most of the items needed were food and milk for the children of the caravan, which are many. The adults get by with the rations of food they are provided, but the small children are suffering. We will be heading over again in the next two weeks and would like to thank you for the donation you made which goes a very long way during this dire need.
