Migration and Immigration
The University of San Diego’s location near the U.S.-Mexico border gives the Trans-Border Institute a unique vantage point for engaging migration and U.S. immigration policy issues. The Trans-Border Institute is actively involved in these issues through our work with human rights groups and our ongoing research and programming.
We have hosted a series of dialogues between the ACLU, the Human Rights Commission of the Mexican federal government, and other immigrant advocacy organizations, in an effort to promote better monitoring of migrant abuses along the U.S.-Mexican border.
We have also hosted conferences on religion, migration and national identity, and trans-border migration and development.
