Deported Veterans Advocacy Project, founded by Veterans For Peace, actively works to embrace, encourage, uplift and support all Deported Veterans around the world and to bring international awareness of the injustice of our deportation from the U.S.
In the last few months, VFP chapters in Tijuana, Baja and San Diego have been working around the clock to support asylum seekers. They have been helping to gather and distribute clothing, blankets and other goods to the large numbers of people who have been fleeing conditions in their home countries. They also have been working hard to challenge the bias that exists towards the caravan in Tijuana and encourage support for the refugees.
The U.S. government, instead of welcoming the approaching refugees, the majority of whom will seek asylum under completely legal processes, is treating individuals and families fleeing to the U.S. as if they are "terrorists" (even when "counterterrorism" officials within the administration are stating that no such people exist within the caravan). The majority of these refugees are fleeing from violence in Honduras and a political situation United States' actions have made worse. (See Veterans For Peace Statement)
