No More Deaths is a humanitarian organization based in southern Arizona. It began in 2004 in the form of a coalition of community and faith groups, dedicated to stepping up efforts to stop the deaths of migrants in the desert and to achieving the enactment of a set of Faith-Based Principles for Immigration Reform. We later developed into an autonomous project. Since 2008 we have been an official ministry of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson.
This special collection honors their work and that of other news and non-profit organizations covering the immigrant crisis at the Southern border of the United States of America. Donate here to No More Deaths.

DISAPPEARED part 1: Deadly Apprehension Methods
Deadly Apprehension Methods: The Consequences of Chase and Scatter in the Wilderness.
Part 1 of a three-report series, Disappeared: How the US Border Enforcement Agencies Are Fueling a Missing Persons Crisis.
In this first report, we find that people who cross the border and are never seen again do not merely go missing, they are disappeared by the US border-enforcement system. Using surveys conducted in Nogales and data from Derechos's Missing Migrant Crisis Line, we find that the Border Patrol routinely chases border crossers into remote terrain causing them to scatter, become lost, and often die or disappear.
