IMMIGRANT  DEFENDERS LAW CENTER

The Bring Them Home team is proud to partner with IMMDEF in being a part of the solution. 

The Deported Veterans Project at ImmDef is a ground-breaking program for Southern California

immigrants and deported veterans caught in an unjust immigration system. Lack of resources

and support for immigrant veterans is evidence of systemic failure. Through this program,

deported veterans have hope to return home to their community with the help of a zealous

advocate, rather than continuing to suffer consequences of past mistakesImmDef is one of the rare

non-profit organizations that regularly provides a safety net for deported veterans free of charge.

 

In addition to legal representation and in immigration and post-conviction relief cases, ImmDef is working to create institutional changes to better serve this population by advocating with stakeholders such as District Attorney offices, Immigration Judges, and the Department of Homeland Security and calling attention to the unique struggles of deported veterans.

BRING THEM HOME SYNOPSIS 

Bring Them Home is a documentary short about the plight of discarded American heroes, deported veterans. 

After creating the song "Excuse My Accent," artists Robert "RobYoung" Walker and Andrei "Drei Ros" Rosca stumbled across the story of Hector Barajas; a deported American veteran. Upon hearing the baffling story, the two decide to shed light on the issue. 

 

Connecting with experts on the issue, as well as traveling to Tijuana Mexico to get first hand stories from deported veterans themself at "The Bunker" a meeting place for current exiled veterans, the two artist aim to bring awareness to a complex conversation. 

Bring Them Home is an honest documentary following the story of Hector Barajas, his initiative to start The Deported Veterans Support House and an in depth look into how the term "deported veteran" came to be.
