The Border Church team in Mexico is now offering "asistencia integral" to migrants and deportees through an office located in the "California's Plaza"in the "El Chaparral" neighborhood of TIjuana.
In 2017, the team conducted a successful "pilot project" offering holistic assistance to people being deported from the United States. They called this program "Asistencia Integral a los Deportados" (A.I.D.). Beginning in the Fall of 2018, in response to the arrival of unprecedented numbers of migrants arriving in Tijuana from Central America, the Border Church Mexico team began to replicate this successful model through a program called "Asistencia Integral a los Migrantes" (A.I.M.)
Through creative partnerships with other community-based organizations, leaders of the Border Church team in Mexico are transforming this plaza into a "Border Line Crisis Center," a hub for efforts to ameliorate the humanitarian crisis that is unfolding in Tijuana and other cities on Mexico's northern border.
