Interference with Humanitarian Aid: Death and
Disappearance on the US-Mexico Border
This report details 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.
Left to Die: Border Patrol, Search and Rescue, and the Crisis of Disappearance
This report, coming on February 3, 2021, will focus on a discriminatory and deadly emergency response system in the borderlands. We document how Border Patrol has inserted themselves as the sole responder for undocumented border crossers in need of search and rescue, fails to respond to such emergencies, and obstructs family and humanitarian search and rescue efforts.
