A Facebook campaign turned Raices into a symbol of zero tolerance opposition almost overnight. The Guardian visits the team on the ground
From the outside it does not look like much a tucked-away corner unit opposite a health-food shop in a low-slung, low-rent strip mall in a humdrum suburb on the outskirts of San Antonio.
Despite the modest surrounds, this is the home of a fiercely determined force battling one of the highest-profile and controversial policies of the Trump administration, the separation of families at the southern border.
Raices, the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, has been around since 1986. The not-for-profit group attracted little notice beyond Texas until this year, when almost overnight it became a national focal point for opposition to the Trump administrations zero-tolerance immigration policy, the subject of a major Guardian investigation this week.
A Facebook fundraiser for Raices started in June by a Californian couple had an initial goal of $1,500. It went viral, and within a couple of weeks generated more than $20m three times the organisations annual budget.
