Overseas Network, July 27. The US government issued an announcement late on Monday (26th) evening, announcing that after preliminary screening at the southwest border of the country, the government will begin to expel immigrant families that immigration officials have determined to be ineligible for asylum.
The announcement aroused strong condemnation from immigrant rights groups.
According to news from the New York Times on the 26th, this policy, known as accelerated deportation, has resumed the previous administration's practice. Asylum officials will interview immigrant family members during the rapid screening process to determine whether they are eligible.
According to the report, the current administration of the United States has been working hard to deal with the influx of unauthorized immigrants, and there is little sign of abating the implementation of this policy.
The Department of Homeland Security said in a statement that expedited evictions provide a legal and faster process for expelling families who have no reason to stay in the United States under U.S. law.
Monday’s announcement drew strong condemnation from immigrant rights groups.
The American Civil Liberties Union lawyer, Lee Gelernt, has sued the White House for terminating the use of the asylum procedure by the US government. Glent said that thwarting desperate families through rapid deportation procedures will deprive these families of the most basic due process protections. , And it’s hard to be called humane.
Earlier, some legal groups also worried that this move by the United States once again caused a large number of illegal immigrant families to "separate flesh and blood."
In order to limit the spread of the new crown virus, the "42nd Public Health Order" issued by the last U.S. government allows the U.S. to send illegal immigrants back to the border immediately, even if they wish to apply for asylum.
Although the current government has exemptions for all minors traveling alone, the policy of rapid deportation of illegal immigrants has been retained.
In June this year alone, US Border Patrol officers arrested 188,000 people per visit, the highest monthly figure in at least a decade.
In the first nine months of the fiscal year ending September 30 last year, the number of U.S. border arrests reached 1 million.
