Many of us are tuning in to different news outlets or scrolling through our social media and seeing various sad reports of children being ripped from their families on the US/Mexico border.
Abogado Ray takes a moment to breakdown what exactly is happening on the US/Mexico border now that the Trump administration has decided to start a “zero tolerance” policy against immigration that is creating an overflow of court hearings.
“Attorney General Sessions all but took away the opportunity for someone to win their case based on violence that was done by private actors. This decision means those fleeing severe domestic violence and kidnapping from private individuals may not be able to pass their initial credible fear interviews.” shares attorney Ray Ybarra Maldonado.
Furthermore, Sessions and the Trump administration are now attempting to criminalize every single person that comes to the US/Mexico border even if they have a valid asylum case. They have created inhumane and unfair conditions for not only the parents and adults attempting to seek refuge in the US, but also their children.
