MAY 17 2021 THE U.S. GOVERNMENT IS CONTINUING ITS EFFORTS TO DEAL WITH THE LARGE NUMBER OF IMMIGRANTS ALONG THE SOUTHWEST BORDER, U.S. MEDIA REPORTED. But in the past few months, new developments have emerged among the country’s border migrants, refugees from places like India fleeing the outbreak, and the U.S. government is not ready to deal with a widespread wave of such migrants.
The New York Times reported on the 16th that these migrant flows are increasing from distant countries, where the coronavirus has caused unimaginable diseases and deaths, and the economy and livelihoods have been greatly reduced.
If it used to be a challenge to survive in such a country, it is now almost impossible. According to recently released official figures, 30 per cent of all households encountered at the border in April came from countries other than Central American countries, compared with 7.5 per cent in April 2019.
Reported that the migrants from India and other parts of Asia, set out on a round-the-world journey. Some people reported taking buses to a big city in their hometown, such as Mumbai, India, where they boarded a plane to Dubai, then made transit through Moscow, Paris and Madrid before heading to Mexico City. There, they embarked on a two-day bus journey to the Mexican-American border.
Reported that many immigrants because of their own economic difficulties forced to the U. S. border, now because of the coronavirus pandemic expanded this group of immigrants.
Interviews with many migrants arriving at the border, as well as border patrol officials, shelter operators and immigration scholars, show that these new refugees have caused the collapse of immigration management. U.S. media worry that most migrants will wait years for immigration hearings after being released, and that if they fail to win asylum, many may end up staying, leaving millions of illegal immigrants stranded in the United States.
