American Friends Service Community
December 30, 2007
This preliminary report is the product of multiple sources, including first hand accounts, news reports, victims’ complaints, personal interviews and telephone conversations with victims, witnesses, and Department of Homeland Security representatives. While not comprehensive in nature, as a preliminary report it presents serious concerns about how local, state, and federal authorities responded to the needs of vulnerable groups, in particular the migrant population throughout San Diego County. In the months ahead, the American Friends Service Committee will continue to work with its community partners to further develop a more comprehensive analysis on the state of civil and human rights for migrant communities in relation to the humanitarian crisis generated by the firestorms of October 2007.
