    Living in Crisis: Latino Children Held Hostage

    UC Davis Health physician meets with members of the migrant caravan in Mexico

    Sergio Aguilar-Gaxiola, MD, PhD, mental health expert, assesses migrants' needs in Tijuana

    December 26, 2018

    Professor Sergio Aguilar-Gaxiola, back row, second from left, at one of four migrant shelters he visited in Tijuana, Mexico, as part of a delegation of philanthropic organizations. UC Davis Health mental health expert Sergio Aguilar-Gaxiola visited emergency shelters in Tijuana, Mexico, last week, on behalf of an influential philanthropic organization assessing the needs of migrants from Central America and Mexico. Aguilar-Gaxiola, director of the UC Davis Center for Reducing Health Disparities and a professor of internal medicine, traveled as a representative of the California Health Care Foundation, of which he serves on the board of directors. The foundation and a delegation of philanthropic leaders, including the heads of The California Endowment and James Irvine Foundation, are seeking ways to improve the lives of some 4,000 migrants, many of whom traveled from as far away as Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala to seek asylum in the United States. Aguilar-Gaxiola on Dec. 18 met with many of the children, youth and adults who sleep in tents, parking lots and buildings repurposed as shelters. The migrants arrived over the past several weeks. What I heard is that these migrants truly are fleeing their countries because of the precarious living conditions they are facing, “Aguilar-Gaxiola said. “They are willing to risk their lives and walk thousands of miles in order to look for a chance to a better life. The four shelters he visited provide safe spaces for migrants and are tightly monitored and controlled by security, Aguilar-Gaxiola said, but outside the perimeter, it is a much different story. Two Honduran migrant teenagers walking from their youth shelter were kidnapped and killed, according to news reports, a couple of days before Aguilar-Gaxiola visited that shelter. The compound shelter, a concert and event venue known as El Barretal on the outskirts of Tijuana, provides a temporary home to about 2,400 migrants. Aguilar-Gaxiola observed “a sea of tents” and numerous booths representing various international and national humanitarian and human rights organizations. Groups such as UNICEF, Human Rights International and World Vision oversee the safety of the migrants. Some organizations are advising migrants on how to apply for asylum in the United States. It was a very moving, rich and memorable experience,” Aguilar-Gaxiola added. Aguilar-Gaxiola shared photographs and personal notes of his observations with Sandra Hernandez, president and CEO of the California Health Care Foundation, whose organization along with the other foundations are considering how best to respond to the migrant and humanitarian crisis. The Tijuana excursion was organized by Hispanics in Philanthropy, an Oakland-based national nonprofit that is highly concerned with the state of migrants and is expecting another caravan of migrants to walk up toward the border over the next few months. The UC Davis Center for Reducing Health Disparities, in alliance with the UC Davis Clinical and Translational Science Center, provides leadership and support within and beyond UC Davis Health to promote the health and well-being of ethnically diverse populations. The center's ultimate goal is to improve health outcomes for all.
