Un peu de médiatisation sur le traitement des immigrants à la frontière états-unienne…
Detention of Ukrainian Woman in Texas Is Questioned
The weeklong prison detention of a Ukrainian woman who is married to a U.S. citizen in El Paso, Texas, has shed light on the difficulties of enforcing U.S. immigration law at a time when border agents are overwhelmed by a surge of migrants from Central America. While some immigrants are released to await a hearing, many others languish in detention.
But instead of keeping her in the processing center, which was overcrowded, the border agents sent Bronova to a prison used for hardcore criminals.
“I wasn’t expecting to be in a maximum security prison and be forbidden to call. So the whole week I was there I was not able to make any calls and nobody could call me,” said Bronova.
The first thing Bronova did after being released, according to Price, was pull out a list of names and numbers her Central American friends had given her before she left prison.
“When she left, the first day-and-a-half she spent calling these people’s families in Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, letting them know where their family members were,” said Price.
Et pour finir, une déclaration dans le plus pur style israélien…
Officials of the U.S. immigration agency, known as ICE, cannot comment on specific asylum cases, but an ICE spokesperson in Houston told VOA that every effort is made to provide a fair process for anyone seeking asylum and a safe, secure and humane environment for those who are detained.
