U.S. President Donald Trump issued an executive order (EO) on June 20, entitled “Affording Congress an Opportunity to Address Family Separation.” In that executive order, the president announced an intention to alter the policy of separating adult asylum seekers from their children by incarcerating adults and children together while the adults are undergoing criminal prosecution.

WASHINGTON (19 June) – Plan International is urging the U.S. administration to reverse its “zero tolerance” immigration policy and to end the practice of forcibly separating families at the U.S.-Mexico border, including the detention of children taken from their parents.

Such practices are reprehensible, regardless of migrants’ legal status, and are a direct violation of the legal rights of asylum seekers under U.S. law, as well as under treaties to which the U.S. is a ratified party.

Principales conclusiones

¿Qué hay de nuevo? Pese a los trinos del presidente estadounidense Donald Trump que sugieren lo contrario, México está controlando activamente su frontera sur, conteniendo el flujo de centroamericanos que se dirigen hacia el norte para escapar a la pobreza y la violencia. Está deportando a miles de personas y acogiendo a otras miles como refugiados, aunque muchas permanecen en un limbo legal.

Mexico stops hundreds of thousands of Central Americans fleeing northward to the U.S. Many are deported, and many more are stuck in the country’s south, vulnerable to crime and rising xenophobia. With U.S. and European help, Mexico should work harder to protect migrants and foster economic development.

US and Mexican authorities must stop demonizing participants of the caravan from Central America and respect their fundamental right to seek asylum, said Amnesty International today, ahead of their expected arrival at the border between both countries later this week.

“Seeking asylum is not a crime in the USA or anywhere. The efforts of US officials to tarnish asylum seekers as criminals are cynical fabrications that ring hollow,” said Erika Guevara Rosas, Americas director at Amnesty International.
