Border Residents Speak Up!

The Southern Border Communities Coalition, of which Alliance San Diego is a part, will continue to fight for a nation that is fair and just, and remain committed to ensuring that the rights and dignity of border residents and those who travel through our region are protected, and that our quality of life is preserved.

BCC and border residents held a call with national media and congressional hill staffers to discuss how the extraordinary powers granted to immigration enforcement officers impact our daily lives, and how to move forward. The call featured, Andrea Guerrero, Executive Director of Alliance San Diego; Ramon Batista, Assistant Chief of the Tucson Police Department; John Anthony Sedgwick, Business owner and rancher in Nogales, Arizona; Héctor Guzmán López, Organizer with Fuerza del Valle Workers’ Center in Alamo, Texas; and Jorge Rodriguez, Ph.D. student from New Mexico and expert on Border Patrol checkpoints.
