SCU students will spend a week learning about immigration policy and reform and its impact on the lives of people living along the US-Mexican border. The immersion will focus on: agricultural policies, labor issues, environmental impacts, international trade policies and practices, poverty and food access. Migrants, community leaders, activists, and NGOs will share the history and culture of this region through meetings with organizations that may include: Green Valley Samaritans, Florence Project, US Customs and Border Patrol, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Café Justo, Sierra Club, and Kino Border Initiative. The group will be based in the Tucson area and hosted by by BorderLinks, an international organization that builds bridges of solidarity across North and Latin American borders.
