Border Network for Human Rights to Launch Abuse Documentation Campaign
At 1pm on Wednesday, January 31st, Border Network for Human Rights will host a press conference launching its annual abuse documentation campaign detailing the status of human rights in our communities. The campaign will run from February 1st through February 22ndâ€”the anniversary of the fateful day when Juan Patricio Peraza a young immigrant was killed by border patrol agents nearby Annunciation House- a shelter for immigrants in El Paso.
The campaign will focus on uncovering any potential abuses committed by area law-enforcement agencies, school districts, and other government agencies. It will also seek to explore the breadth of deportation and family separation in our communities. More than 100 trained documenters will table and canvass in community centers, stores, churches, and even at ports-of-entry across Southern New Mexico, and El Paso County. People seeking more information or to report an abuse can call the BNHR office at (915) 577-0724.
