According to new reports, a left-wing organization by the name of “Al Otro Lado” is now working closely with caravan migrants and coaching them on how to have the best chance to gain Asylum.
Al Otro Lado is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization
incorporated in California.
We are a bi-national, direct legal services organization serving indigent deportees, migrants, and refugees in Tijuana, Mexico. The bulk of our services are immigration-related.
We work with non-custodial deported parents to ensure their rights as parents are protected in the United States family court system.
Al Otro Lado started as a project in 2012 between current board members Nora Phillips and Esmeralda Flores. At the time, Nora was a Staff Attorney at CARECEN (Central American Resource Center) in Los Angeles and Esmeralda was an attorney for PDIB (Programa de Defensa e Incidencia Binacional), a human rights organization along the US-Mexico border (Esmeralda is now the binational outreach coordinator with ACLU of San Diego & Imperial Counties for the Lopez-Venegas settlement for victims of coercive and deceptive practices by Customs and Border Protection).
