Life in Tijuana for Asylum Seekers

Presentation by Joyce Lackie. Al Otro Lado (“To the Other Side”) is an immigration advocacy organization based in Los Angeles. The group provides low-cost or pro bono legal representation to individuals seeking asylum in the United States. Joyce has just returned from volunteering with the organization and will share experiences about what is really happening at the U.S./Mexico border. A retired professor of English, Joyce became interested in Latin American and immigration issues when writing the life story of a Mexican woman who entered the country without documentation in 1946 and made a life in Colorado.
