In the article “Mexico: Asylum Seekers Face Abuses at Southern Border” by Human Rights Watch I learned that immigrants face abuse while trying to seek Asylum. It’s now more difficult to seek Asylum because it’s being pushed back by the US president. Additionally, the US president is also telling the Mexican president to push back on the refugees so it’s making all these immigrants who are coming in for Asylum to suffer longer in another country that isn’t their own. Immigrants seeking Asylum are also discriminated against by the Mexican people which makes it harder for them to live comfortably in an unknown country.
This situation is very unjust to the immigrants who had to leave their country unwillingly, just to have to face more tough situations. I don’t understand the reasoning for Biden to push back on refugees but I believe that it’s causing a lot of issues and making immigrants suffer. All the immigrants want to do is seek refugee because their country isn’t stable for them anymore.
As I continue to learn about border issues, I’m curious to know why the US isn’t helping people seek Asylum and why Mexico doesn’t help the ones in their country.
