Border Angels


Border Angels has left thousands of gallons of water in the desert along paths most commonly traveled by migrants. Due to the implementation of Operation Gatekeeper, one of the US government’s most inhumane border enforcement policies, has caused the death of more than 11,000 migrants. Thousands of daughters, sons, mothers, fathers, spouses and friends have died, the main cause being dehydration. Many more have gone missing and their remains are still yet to be found.
Many more have gone missing and their remains are still yet to be found. Our team leads trained volunteers into the California desert and mountains to leave water and non-perishable supplies for migrants, with the hope that they will save someone’s life. 

This work is done in memory of all people that have lost their lives in search of a better one.​

In the year 2020, we placed over 1,200 gallons of water along several desert routes, and picked up over half a ton of trash from the desert.


Through our Shelter Aid Program we provide support to various migrant shelters in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. We provide funding to help cover the cost of  rent, utilities, shelter construction projects and food for shelter residents. The need in Tijuana is significant and many shelters depend on donations to continue being able to provide life-saving services.

This support has become more crucial to migrant survival and well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has limited cross border travel and most organizations that previously worked in Tijuana, such as faith-based organizations and our own Caravans of Love have been completely halted, leaving families without the donations that they once relied on.

Our Shelter Aid Program assists over 900 migrants daily supporting 15 different migrant shelters in Tijuana.

Due to COVID-19, we are limited to sending monetary donations to shelters and are not receiving physical donations.

We have been able to help fund projects like:
  • Medical attention and water stations with the help of Refugee Health Alliance
  • Expansion of Roca de Salvación shelter to provide space for COVID-19 isolation and preparedness 
  • Washers to ensure proper sanitation of clothes of shelter residents


This program provides legal representation to migrant children seeking Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS). These children are currently in custody of Riverside County. We have partnered with immigration attorney Fabiola  Navarro who will provide legal representation to ensure that these children receive the legal protections they deserve!

In 2020 alone, there have been 10,779 minors that have been placed in custody of Health and Human Services (HHS). Many of these children may qualify for a Special Immigrant Juvenile Status, which is a pathway to a green card (also known as a legal permanent residence) for children that have been abused, abandoned or neglected by one or both of their parents.

                   Dulce Garcia Executive Director for Border Angels:

"Every child, especially those that have been neglected or abused, deserves the right to guaranteed protection. They deserve to live in a safe environment where they can thrive and follow their dreams. Border Angels is thankful for the partnership with attorney Fabiola Navarro which has given us the ability to provide these children with the assistance they need. We hope that Green Cards for Kids will help migrant children in Riverside County gain legal protection as well as hope for a better future."
