Via Women's March San Diego and the ACLU: Asylum Seekers are not our enemy. The ACLU has called yesterday’s actions at the border “outrageous and inhumane,” and remind us that “migrants at our southern border are human beings, including mothers and small children, who are exercising their legal, human right to seek asylum.”
Below is a comprehensive list of service/giving opportunities:

Instituto de Madre Assunta A.C. is the sister-shelter of Casa del Migrante, serving women and children migrants. It was the first in Tijuana to develop a method for the provision of dignified assistance to women and children who have been displaced after deportation from the U.S. or are migrating from central Mexico. As of this week, the shelter is filled beyond double their capacity, but unwilling to close its doors to anyone in need.
