Mexican newspaper denounces U.S. immigration policies

Mexico City, Mar 30 (Prensa Latina) U.S. immigration policies violate the right to asylum, a report by lawyers and analysts on the fire in a shelter where 38 migrants died, denounced today newspaper La Jornada.

The document pointed out that lawyers disagree with Mexico’s acceptance of thousands of people expelled from the United States at the border, all of which nurtured the conditions for the tragedy in Ciudad Juarez, according to immigrant advocates.

They added that the fire at the temporary stay in Ciudad Juarez last Monday, ‘is a consequence of the restrictive and cruel immigration policies that are increasingly inhumane, making it almost impossible to access the right to seek asylum’.

U.S. immigration policy in recent years, both in the administration of Donald Trump (2017-2021) and Joe Biden, has been focused on curbing the flow of migration across the border with Mexico, which has led to tragic incidents and human rights violations on both sides.

The U.S. policy under the so-called Title 42 (which allows the expulsion of migrants to Mexico) violates the law on asylum,” Katrina Eiland, a lawyer with the Immigrants’ Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), stated in an interview with La Jornada.

This jurist of the national organization that has led the legal effort against the practice of denying entry to asylum seekers in the Trump and Biden administrations, believes that the reason why there are so many people trapped in northern Mexico is because the United States has shut down the asylum system. Eiland indicated that the ACLU will continue to battle Biden’s ‘illegal’ program, including new versions with other names of the same initiatives, which are expected to be implemented in May and which she said resemble those of the Trump administration.
