Pueblo Sin Fronteras (English: People without Borders) is an immigration rights group known for organizing several high-profile migrant caravans in Mexico and Central America. The organization's efforts to facilitate immigration and calls for open borderss attracted considerable amounts of coverage in the Mexican and American media.[1][2][3][4][5][6]

Operations[edit]

Pueblo Sin Fronteras was formed in the early 2000s.[7] The group builds shelters for refugees on the trek north to the Mexican-American border and provides legal counsel to them.[7] Activists affiliated with the group are present in the United States, where the organization actively raises funds and organizes protest actions against U.S. immigration policy.[7] The organization is a member organization of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network.[8]

The organization is notable for coordinating several high-profile migrant caravans in April 2018 and October 2018.[1][9] These caravans, which traveled from Central America into Mexico, were the subject of widespread media coverage.[2][10][3] Unlike the April caravan, the October 2018 caravan was not directly organized by Pueblo Sin Fronteras, with the group instead offering logistical support.[1][11][12]
