Parents and their child have a special bond that should be unbreakable and unadulterated unless there is an extreme amount of child neglect and the child would benefit from the impact of the separation rather than suffering from the distance put in place. Donald Trump the current president of the United States however has received an outcry from the world recently as he’s appeared to have completely disregarded this mutual emotion recently by exhibiting some appalling behaviour. He has received very public criticism and outrage over Tamil separations at the southern border.
The outcry over the policy:
Congressman Ted Leiu took the house floor and stood somber as heartbreaking audio was played of small children that have been brutally separated from parents cried out for them. “If the Statue of Liberty could cry, she would be crying today,” the California Democrat said opening his remarks on the House floor. The audio was followed by saddening pictures showing visually the impact that this law has brought about. “As I stand here there are 2,300 babies and kids who were ripped away from their parents by our government in detention centers around the country,” he continued, likening the policy to the “functional equivalent in kidnapping”.
The perils of escaping to the United States:
It is estimated that in San Juan 15,000 of the municipality’s 78,000 inhabitants have migrated to the US. With three of these immigrants dying in the process in just the past six weeks, one of whom was shot dead at the border by an agent.
But with gangs taking over the military on guatemala and expanding to rural areas in a more organised fashion, it seems that fleeing to the United States is still the more safer and better choice for a future. Even people who have been deported previously are ready to take the risk and go no to the United States “I was in the US for four years,” said Kevin López, a 17-year-old call centre worker. “I can make $100 a day there without overtime, better than here and I’m on a good salary. Every choice is difficult, we either leave our families or live poor.”
