Dire human rights situation of migrants in US

The US State Department recently issued a proposal on sheltering refugees for the 2023 fiscal year, distorting the truth as if refugees immigrating to the US are enjoying “genuine freedom and democracy”.

A typical example of the dire living conditions of the immigrants in the US is the fact that around 2 980 immigrants have so far lost their lives in the US-Mexico border areas since 2014 as they, yielding to the temptation of human traffickers, tried to immigrate to the country dreaming about “wealth and prosperity”.

The US drives out immigrants by building a border wall and mobilizing the armed forces in the US-Mexico border areas. It has set up all sorts of asylums and detention centers to detain the refugees.

It hasn’t been long since the world was in a great outcry as a video clip showing American border patrols coercively deporting Haitian immigrants by whipping them and a document revealing miserable living conditions of immigrants were made public.

A terrible incident took place last June where sixty-odd immigrants from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and elsewhere were suffocated in a large container lorry. This gave the international society a great shock.

After the outbreak of Covid-19 in particular, discrimination and maltreatment against Asian and African immigrants are becoming ever more serious in the US.

In New York City, an Asian woman was pushed out from a tram and died in broad daylight and in Atlanta a gunman shot six Asian women to death. All these incidents are only the tip of the iceberg presenting the dismal human rights situation in the US.

This is the miserable reality of the refugees and migrants who wish to come to the US with a dream of “flamboyant life”.

In the US society where white supremacy is prevalent and racial discrimination and misanthropy are rampant, human rights of immigrants can never be ensured.
