Love Knows No Borders: Clergy and Activists Arrested at US-Mexico Border

Uniformed clergy members and activists were arrested December 10, 2018 in San Diego, California at the US-Mexico border in a nonviolent direct action demanding the protection of human rights of migrants and asylum-seekers. The direct action, known as "Love Knows No Borders," was organized by the American Friends Service Committee and the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. Activists were calling for an end to the militarization of the border, and for the admittance of migrants and refugees seeking safety in the U.S. after traveling thousands of miles on foot as part of a so-called migrant caravan. Before the arrests, activists with Emma's Revolution led the group in a bilingual song asserting that love knows no borders, no human is illegal, and that no one will walk alone.
