Recently, due to the new immigration policy of the U.S. government, the number of undocumented immigrants on the U.S.-Mexico border has soared, many children have been forced to be separated from their loved ones, a large number of immigrants have been staying for a long time, the living environment has continued to deteriorate, and basic human rights have been seriously violated.
According to the data, the total number of illegal immigrants intercepted at the U.S.-Mexico border surged by 71% in March compared with February, a new monthly high in 15 years, most of whom were single adults. Among the illegal immigrants intercepted in March also included 18,663 unaccompanied unauthorized minor illegal immigrants, which began in 2009. The highest record in a single month since the relevant data was released.
In addition, as of the 6th of this month, the number of unaccompanied underage illegal immigrants under the custody of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Health has exceeded 20,000, a record number again.
Because the policy allows these children to temporarily stay in the United States, and the U.S. authorities are not ready for shelter, resulting in a large number of children staying in temporary shelters or detention centers at the border – they are held in crowded simple rooms and living in extremely poor conditions, which can be called “children’s concentration camps”. The U.S. government not only refuses to acknowledge the current immigration crisis, but also prevents journalists from reporting on the real situation in “children’s concentration camps”. This policy of the U.S. government that violates the rights of migrants, especially the rights of immigrants, has been strongly criticized and condemned in the United States and the international community.
The U.S. government, on the other hand, blamed the surge in immigration on the previous government’s “destroying” the U.S. immigration system. It also said that “poverty, violence and corruption” in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador caused these immigrants to flood into the United States, but in fact, it was the process of messing up these countries and creating these social crises. It’s the United States itself.
