According to President Trump, “They bring drugs, crime, some may be good.” In his campaign he was against immigrants to an extent that he built a wall to keep them out. He said, “Without a wall, there was no country,” and he expanded deportation. He wanted to end catch and release of families. Hence, the zero tolerance policy that facilitated separations of families at the border through John Kelly from homeland security secretary. The zero tolerance policy is on the extreme side. More children being ripped off from their families have resulted in horrifying stories where a baby, only one year old, is separated from its mother while others cry in separate rooms to be reunited to their family members. This is a serious violation of children rights and an arbitrary interference in the lives of families. There are better more humane solutions to immigration than creating a public health crisis of individuals who are at risk of depression at a young age.
1.) What does it say about the people who are willing to risk their lives, often leading to death, disease, and rape (6 in 10 girls are raped) in order to make the journey from countries like El Salvador to the United States to seek asylum?
These individuals go through horrendous times moving and it takes courage and persistence. For some of the children who had to cope with the murders in El Salvador, they are forced to seek the help of a psychologist to deal with the traumatic memories. These children get mentally stressed because of the nightmares. The asylum processes are taking too long but these families are hopeful that they would regain their freedom away from threat by gangs and would finally have peace. The parents are afraid to be separated from their children and are getting away from the endangered places so that their children can have a future.
2.) How has the Separation Policy affected the children who have been separated from their parents?
Separation of children has been done for long time about 34 years but that was when the child’s life was in danger. Now it is on a broader scale. The children are sent in shelters- better than the detention centers. These children will have lasting traumatic effects. One child and her mother were taken to an ice box jail- cold as the name suggests. Then Jocelyn was separated from her daughter within 20 hours. But they told Jocelyn’s daughter nothing just that she was being taken to a shelter and that she would never see her again. Jocelyn’s daughter cries in this video a clear depiction of the pain she suffered. For the young children in detained in separate cells from their parents, they did not know what was going on and were distraught. We also see that children as young as one year olds have no adult taking care of them and are treated same as other older children. In a tape released children cry and some wish that they could at least call their aunts.
3.) Clearly, there is no easy solution to fixing the broken immigration system; and while Trump and his supporters feel that border enforcement is never enough, the left believe that it is never humanitarian enough. What do you think would be the best way to handle this situation?
For years family detention have been seen as the only options. Some like New Delhi centers however, were built like prisons; high walls, high lights, high fences and harsh conditions. However, I believe the best way into fixing this broken system is to first help these immigrants by donating to these individuals. There should also be more funds directed to ensuring that the asylum system works in response to the crisis. Working closely with Mexico whose perspective under its new leadership has changed to focus on economic development and human rights is a move into the right direction. Issuance of work permits to the immigrants support Mexico’s shortage of labor. Though their capacity to implement these goals are insufficient, training and support could be offered by the United Nations Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) as well as the Migration International Organization (IOM) to strengthens Mexico’s ability to support its asylum and immigration agency.
