Refugee Crisis in America
As thousands of immigrants fill the US Mexico Border and 1.3 Million refugees from the Middle East arrived in 2020, h the US has become a haven for migrants seeking refuge. Many of which have been processed legally along with deportations of thousands of illegal immigrants at the Rio Grande, is The US in a refugee crisis?
As refugees from Afghanistan, The Caribbean, Mexico, and Ukraine accumulate at the US-Mexico border it is important to keep in mind the vast amount of people in need of shelter and food as many political and climatic issues are being resolved. Thousands of Mexican children have been left alone at the border and refugees from the middle east are being held in refugee camps as they’d been left homeless as a result of conflicts in their home countries. Thousands of people from Ukraine are also in refugee camps in Tijuana as many others have fled across Europe in search of a place to call home meanwhile last year 2,000 of the 30,000 Haitians that attempted to cross the Rio Grande were deported. 3,000 Ukrainian citizens at the US Mexico Border have been processed as traveling with a family member and in 2020 1.3 Million refugees from the Middle East were reported to have made the US their destination in attempts to escape conflicts. As a student focusing on refugee crises’, homelessness and poverty, I concluded that the US has a refugee crisis’ at hand as thousands of people from around the world seek refuge from the destruction of their home countries. We have seen refugees make up the majority of migration throughout history and many who have lost everything in their search for a new home, can we expect some sort of mutual agreement between countries in terms of migration in the near future?
