These are situations that are repeated almost daily in recent times, after Joe Biden ensured that no unaccompanied unlawful child in the United States would be deported to the country of origin. The most recent, recorded on video, tells of a 10-year-old child from Nicaragua, who asks for help from a border police officer he came across. The boy, alone and in tears, says that he “came with a group” that “left him behind, alone” in the Río Grande valley.
Asked by the agent about whether the parents were in this group, the child says no. Without any backpack or signs that he had access to water and food, the child was welcomed by police forces and the case exposed on social networks.
About a week ago the same police revealed a video of surveillance cameras where it is possible to see two people dropping two children over the fence over four meters high. The moment happened during the night and the two girls of three and five years old did not suffer any injuries following the fall from such a significant height.

This Monday, the border patrol rescued two brothers, aged five and six, who were abandoned on the border between the United States and Mexico with only their mother’s phone number written on their arms.
During the month of March alone on the border of the United States with Mexico, the authorities found 171,100 illegal immigrants trying to enter the country to apply for asylum. A record number that can only be compared with the situation experienced in 2006. Unmatched are the figures for unaccompanied children, with 18,800 of the illegal immigrants being minors who arrived without any parental accompaniment.
There are several reports and images of shelters for these overcrowded children and young people, with no guarantees of space at a time when the world is facing the Covid-19 pandemic.
