Disappeared migrants - Microsoft Word

The Foundation for Justice (Fundación para la Justicia y el Estado Democrático de Derecho in Spanish) was founded in 2011, envisioned to defend, promote, and strengthen the access to justice and the due process of law for particularly vulnerable groups, and thus consolidate the rule of law in Mexico.

Conscious of the dramatic conditions faced by transnational and national migrants in transit through Mexico towards the United States (over 20.000 migrants kidnapped in one year, 26.000 people disappeared in the last presidential term, and 20.000 unidentified remains), the Foundation for Justice joined the families of migrants, from Central America and Mexico, who were disappeared or executed in advocating for regionally-coordinated mechanisms to promote truth and justice for hundreds of cases of human rights violations.

The present publications is based on several reports submitted by the Foundation for Justice jointly with the organizations Trial Track Impunity always, Casa del Migrante de Saltillo, Coahuila,  Centro Diocesano para los Derechos Humanos Fray Juan de Larios, A.C., Fuerzas Unidas por Nuestros Desaparecidos (as) en Coahuila (FUUNDEC), Comité de Familiares de Migrantes Fallecidos y Desaparecidos – El Salvador (COFAMIDE), Comité de Familiares de Migrantes de El Progreso (COFAMIPRO), Centro de Derechos Humanos Victoria Diez, A.C. Mesa Nacional para las Migraciones en Guatemala (MENAMIG).

The purpose of this publication is to illustrate the dramatic situation that migrant persons from Central America and Mexico have to face on their way to the United States as well as to display the work the Foundation for Justice has been developing since its foundation in 2011.
