Migrant’s Rights Activist, Ambassador for the Southern Border Communities Coalition
Jenn Budd is a former US Border Patrol agent turned migrant’s rights activist. Jenn was one of the first agents hired as part of Operation Gatekeeper which turbocharged the militarization of the southern border in 1994. There she witnessed firsthand the cruelty, racism and violence that we now know to be cultural pillars of the US Border Patrol. Today, Jenn is an ambassador for the Southern Border Communities Coalition.
