Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Articles 13 and 15
There are well over a half million children living in Mexico born to migrant parents lacking proper identification, which impacts their access to basic public services from education, to healthcare to social security identification. These children are deported U.S. citizens who were forced to leave their home country without proof of their citizenship or their existence.
We will not sit by as a staggering number of children are caught between two countries, lacking the most basic human right – to have an identity.
Bridges firmly believes that migrant rights are human rights, and it is our duty to do everything we can to support migrants on both sides of the border. We work with a Mexican migrant rights N.G.O. (IMUMI) to ensure that migrants and their families are protected. We invite you to join us in our efforts.
