Children from South America, who have legally entered the USA to request asylum (AKA refugees), are being rapidly deported. Regardless of the excuses given, the real reason these kids are being shipped back to hell is because they are brown and speak Spanish. There is solid evidence that those kids are in grave dangers … and some of them have already been murdered.
“Between five and ten migrant children have been killed since February after the United States deported them back to Honduras, a morgue director told the Los Angeles Times. Lawmakers have yet to come up with best practices to deal with the waves of unaccompanied children apprehended by Border Patrol agents, but some politicians refute claims that children are fleeing violence and are opting instead to fund legislation that would fast-track their deportations. San Pedro Sula (Honduras) morgue director Hector Hernandez told the Los Angeles Times that his morgue has taken in 42 dead children since February. According to an interview with relatives by the LA Times, one teenager was shot dead hours after getting deported.”
A big part of the reason that Central America is such a nightmare of violence right now is because the West (mostly American and European political/economic interests) has meddled with the entire region. It is a fact that America (under FDR) created and maintained the Somoza dictatorship, which was overthrown by Sandinistas 1979, which made some Americans afraid because of the socialist nature of the Sandinistas, which caused the Regan administration to back the Contras and create the School of the Americas to train terrorists, but Contra terrorist atrocities and drug running and human trafficking made them wildly unpopular in the US and in the countries they operated, so for the Regan administration and its political allies to keep funding the Contra’s they sold illegal arms to Iran and funneled the money to the Contra terrorists (The Iran-Contra Affair), but the Contras were busy raping nuns and killing children to bring about government change so Nicaragua has returned to the control of the Sandinistas. Moreover, thanks to our hosting the Contras in the surrounding countries, the whole area is awash in drugs and gangs – the leftovers of the Contras.
Now, we send kids back to that mess to die. Like we had nothing to do with it. Even if our country (under BOTH Democratic and Republican Presidents so NO ONE is on the moral high ground here) was as innocent as a lamb vis-à-vis the turmoil there, those children are innocent human beings and it is wrong to send them back to a place where they have such a high risk of being murdered.
See this little girl?
If the US deports her there are strong odds she will be raped and forced into prostitution by a gang or she get murdered or both. She is a human being. She is no older than my first born daughter, who is in forth grade and loves My Little Ponies and The Lego Movie.
Think about it.
