Migrant Deaths along the U.S.-Mexico Border

Every year hundreds of migrants die in U.S. borderlands of dehydration, hypothermia, drowning, or similar causes related to the dangers of their journey. Many of the recovered remains of migrants,
which now number in the thousands, are unidentified. WOLA advocates for measures to prevent migrant deaths and increased efforts to identify the dead and find the missing.
