I'm really shocked by the inhumane stuff happening in the world. There is always a possibility I can, they can, we can be a subject for it. I don't want the inhumane authorities to apply unfair stuff on oppressed, poor and politically unseen people.
Due to the new policy that went into place within the last two weeks -- all Central American refugees or non-refugees (known as OTMs which stands for Other Than Mexican) are now receiving ERs (Expedited Removals without seeing a judge) instead of the long-standing policy of OR/NTA which allows the person to be released on their own custody, and show up when they receive a court date. If the person wants to stay in the United States, and not be immediately returned to their Central American country of origin all they need to DO IS TELL THE PROCESSING AGENT THAT THEY ARE "CLAIMING CREDIBLE FEAR" upon returning to their country. A lot of the Central American refugees do not know this nor does the processing agent tell them. They have the right to claim fear of returning to their native country and they have to see a judge where they can state their case. Otherwise, now, thanks to the new administration, the refugees are being sent back without seeing a judge unless they claim CREDIBLE FEAR when being processed.
US Border Patrol Agent who believes the ER process is unfair & immoral
I cannot believe this. I was ashamed and embarrassed to say I was American while my children and I were traveling in Central America. I wanted to say I was Canadian or British or something else. We are either despised or the laughing stock of the world because of how our selfish government acts. These men will be lucky to find their kids if our foster care system gets involved hopefully they won’t lose custody of them This really pisses me off.
