Phone: Coalition Building to Protect Undocumented Families There are approximately 1,000 families deported daily in the United States, and New Mexico is among the 4 states that deport the most people. Jaens vision is for a Blueprint that helps to prevent deportations from happening in the State of New Mexico. With the help of the community in Albuquerque and across New Mexico, undocumented immigrant families will be able to protect their communities and speak up against the unjust policies that are destroying and separating them every day. By creating a coalition that focuses on leadership development, relationship building, and civic engagement, families in New Mexico will be able to engage, organize and mobilize with the help of everyone in the community.
