Other Ports of Entry, Mexico

Breathe. Know that your family and community are holding you in their thoughts and prayers and it is your own inner strength that will get you through this difficult transition.  To stay safe, make a friend on the bus or plane, stick together to support each other. Be alert and calm, blend in and comply with authority. Avoid casual street encounters, including eye contact. Be prepared for bribes, have $40-100 in cash in $10s & $20s kept in different pockets. Beware of criminal elements, don’t use an offered cell phone to call your family. Have contact information for your family in Mexico and all documents that prove your identity and deportation status on you, not in your bag.

Healing Our Borders/Sanando Nuestras Fronteras, an ecumenical group in which Frontera de Cristo is active. Many impoverished Mexicans come to the United States in search of better incomes. Death from dehydration and heat exhaustion are not uncommon as migrants make their northbound trek, and more than 1 million are arrested each year for working in the United States without proper documentation. The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has been engaged in mission in Mexico since 1872. Its joint ministry with the National Presbyterian Church of Mexico along the border is a major focus of PC(USA) involvement in Mexico.

The Migrant Resource Center is a partnership of many different people and organizations working together towards the common goal of helping migrants. Migrants, especially those who have been recently deported, have many basic humanitarian needs – a fresh pair of socks, a burrito, and some basic medical attention for dehydration and blisters. We help inform migrants about their options, including reduced price bus tickets to return to their place of origin. Another important part of the Center’s work is abuse documentation, which we use to better understand the situation migrants face, and in some cases, help victims of crimes pursue legal options.  They are located immediately on Mexico side of border. I’ve seen volunteers also help locate traveling companions deported through other cities.

Cooperating organizations:

  • Frontera do Cristo

  • La Sagrada Familia Catholic Parrish, Agua Prieta, Sonora

  • No More Deaths-Tucson, Phoenix

  • Centro de Derechos Humanos del Migrante

The Center is a bi-national project, whose two coordinators can be contacted by email:

Betto Ramos, Sagrada Familia Parrish, Mexico


Brenda Cuellar, Frontera de Cristo, United States

You and your family may be faced with the possibility of returning, either voluntarily or due to deportation, to the country of your birth.  If you are facing this possibility, you should plan ahead so that the process can be as simple and safe as possible for you and your family.
