Casa del Migrante in Tijuana: 30 years with doors and hearts open

In 1987, Father Flor María Rigoni placed the first stone in Tijuana that would become the pioneer Migrant Shelter in Mexico. After 30 years of service, the Shelter continues to recreate and adapt to migration changes and the needs of its guests. Although there have always been aspects that hinder our mission, such as the hardening of migration policies and the increase in violence, 2016 brought new challenges: in addition to receiving more than 7,000 Mexican migrants deported and in transit, about 2,000 migrants were received from 32 different countries. This brought with it linguistic, cultural, and operational challenges.

Today, just over 10 months after the extraordinary flow of asylum seekers in Tijuana began, 2017 is designed as a year to lay the foundations and prepare ourselves for what follows. New challenges will come and the immigration measures promoted by President Trump foreshadow difficulties, but also opportunities for improvement; implement more Social Reintegration programs for the deportees; and continue to guide migrants in rebuilding their lives.
