No one stands alone
in our community

The San Diego Rapid Response Network (SDRRN) is a coalition of human rights and service organizations, attorneys, and community leaders dedicated to aiding immigrants and their families in the San Diego border region.

San Diego is the largest land border crossing in the world and has been a highly active location for deportations, rights violations, and abuse by Customs Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The SDRRN was activated to respond to increased immigration enforcement activities within San Diego County and humanitarian issues arising at the border, including widespread family separation and unjust deportation of asylum seekers presenting at the Port-of-Entry.

In Response to "Operation Streamline"

As "Operation Streamline" goes into effect in San Diego, SDRRN Legal Partners are holding free trainings for attorneys interested in providing pro bono legal representation to families seeking asylum and defense against unjust deportation. This effort ensures that more than 30 volunteer attorneys will be prepared to handle the anticipated increase in cases and be matched with experienced immigration attorneys to mentor them throughout the case.

To learn more about our attorney trainings happening on July 13 and July 18, please click here.

Together, we can ensure that no one stands alone in our community.

Individuals seized by CBP and ICE have few resources to defend themselves. The SDRRN stands ready to respond to the needs of vulnerable immigrants and their families – advocating for their safety, providing emergency assistance, and coordinating free and low-cost legal representation to defend against family separation and unjust deportation.
