Description:Jeff Valenzuela of the border humanitarian group Pueblos Sin Fronteras has experienced extensive harassment by US authorities for his work. This portrait is a part of the USA campaign to defend migrant human rights defenders (May 2019). He is also a photographer, and snapped the image he's holding of US border agents teargassing migrants at the border.

The North America IS team carried out a mission to the US/Mexico border to observe and interview migrants who have been forced to wait in Mexico before their asylum claims in the US or heard or throughout the duration of their asylum claim as dictated by Trump's recent "Migrant Protection Protocol" policy.
