The plan is to have a plan

Your Rights

The National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) introduced a web portal “Migrant, the plan is to have a plan”, with the purpose of helping fellow compatriots in the United States. The page is divided in three parts in both countries: Find out, Seek guidance, Defend yourself.

In the Find out section they are reminded how to protect their family, their assets, and how to get a lawyer if they need one. In Seek guidance, it is explained how to act in case of raids, and it offers a list of organizations that can help them. Defend yourself shows the Mexican consular network in the United States.
