Deportations Affecting Homelessness In San Diego, Tijuana

Evening Edition

Aired 9/2/14 on KPBS Midday Edition.

Deportations Affecting Homelessness In San Diego, Tijuana

GUESTS:

Ruth Bruland, executive director, St. Vincent de Paul Village

Everard Meade, director, Trans-Border Institute at the University of San Diego

Nearly 9,000 people are homeless in San Diego County. When we think about the causes of homelessness in our region, several topics spring to mind: unemployment, mental illness, substance abuse. But we rarely include the cross-border flux of deported and undocumented immigrants.

A forum Wednesday night at the Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies at the University of San Diego will highlight the issue of homelessness on both sides of the San Diego-Tijuana border. The panel conversation is called Homelessness in San Diego...What Makes Good Neighbors?

Panel Discussion

When: Wednesday, Sept. 3, 2014 from 6-8 p.m.

Where: Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice Theatre

What: A public conversation about homelessness and the meaning of citizenship in a border community, hosted by the Trans-Border Institute and St. Vincent de Paul Village/Father Joe’s Villages.
