Pueblo Sin Fronteras (English: Village 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 borders 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 1987.[7] The group builds shelters for migrants on the trek north to the Mexican-American border and provides legal counsel to them.[8] 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.[8] The organization is a member organization of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network.[9]

The organization is notable for coordinating several high-profile migrant caravans in April 2018 and October 2018.[1][10] These caravans, which traveled from Central America into Mexico, were the subject of widespread media coverage.[2][11][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][12][13][14]
