The Danger of seeking asylum: Trump immigration policy

Updated on October 6, 2019

American democracy can be confusing. I am here to share my knowledge so the people can understand how the system works

Migration is Not a Crime

Democratic Governance and Policy Networks

Migrants from other countries seek asylum in the United States because they are running from violent living conditions in their own country. When these families arrived at the US borders, children were taken from the parents and was detained without Due Process. With thousands of children and adults in border facilities are suffering inhumane living conditions (Ramos, 2018). This issue has escalated to a crisis that could have been prevent. In this last week, the Trump administration is going to have ICE officers raid homes to detain more migrants. This administration has only ignored the organizations that are fighting for human rights of migrants.

The American Civil Liberties Union is a non-profit organization that fight for all human rights ("American Civil Liberties Union," 2019). This organization has sued the Trump administration over migrants’ rights. Now that living conditions has been brought to the public eye, the ACLU is asking for people to donate to assist in legal representation for these people. The ACLU strives to inform people that no human can be illegal or outside protection of the law ("American Civil Liberties Union," 2019). But the Trump administration continues to ignore and continue to violate human rights. This as to the ACLU to reach to the United Nations Human Rights Council.

The United Nations Human Rights Council is made up of 47 states that promotes protection of human rights worldwide (Banks, 2018). The United States pulled our membership from this council last year around the same time the zero-tolerance policy was implemented ("Congressional Research Service," 2019). The Trump administration argued the council had dictators as members who was violated human rights (Scannella, 2007). We can agree all humans should be treated fairly no matter their background. Trump administration in my opinion pulled out our membership because it was being noted on the treatment of families seeking asylum. Being aware of the conditions migrant families are face with, the UN is speaking out.

These organizations became the voices of these migrants and it has gotten the public attention. Congress has passed a bill for billions to immediately fix the issues at the border ("Congressional Research Service," 2019). I argue, the Trump administration will not use all these funds to fix the issues. Learning the facilities that are housing these migrants are in contract for billions of dollars and these owners contribute to the Trump campaign. Our democracy today is filled with people that are greedy and will take no matter what the cost.

Our democracy was created for all to be free and yet in 2019 I am witnessing hatred toward others because they are different. The Trump administration has proven greed can influence our democracy. Because the efforts of these two organization, the people can take a stand in hopes to change this administration for the better.
