Migrants turned away at border under Biden face shocking abuse in Mexico
Human Rights First report records 3,300 incidents of kidnap, rape, trafficking or assault linked to Trump-era Title 42 health protocol
Last modified on Tue 22 Jun 2021 18.29 BSTNearly 3,300 migrants stranded insince January due to a US border policy have been kidnapped, raped, trafficked or assaulted, according to a new report by the campaigning group Human Rights First.Thedocuments cases of migrants and asylum seekers stuck in Mexico since Joe Biden took office on 20 January. The number of cases has jumped in recent weeks from roughly 500 such incidents logged in April to 3,300 by mid-June.
Biden has moved to reverse many of the restrictive immigration policies of his predecessor Donald Trump. However,the Biden administration has left in place a border expulsion policy known as Title 42. During Biden’s five-month tenure, more than 400,000 migrants detained at or near the border have been expelled, including many Central American families and asylum seekers sent back to Mexico.
Publicly, the Biden administration insists the order remains necessary to limit the spread of the coronavirus, although it has not provided scientific data to support that rationale and many public health experts have opposed it.Advocates say that the use of Title 42 provisions violates US obligations under international law to offer due process to asylum seekers. headtopics.com
Human Rights First compiled the incidents from media reports, interviews with migrants seeking US asylum and information from attorneys and human rights groups. Reuters was not able to independently verify the accounts.The White House and Department of Homeland Security did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Drug cartels, street gangs and human trafficking networks are often active in some areas of northern Mexico near the US border.
Some of the alleged victims were expelled under the Title 42 order while others have been blocked by the policy and therefore stranded in Mexico, a Human Rights First spokesperson said. Read more: The Guardian »

Joe Biden is getting a free ride for behaviour that would have seen Donald Trump denounced'You do not have to have any special liking for the former president of the United States to notice that there has been a remarkable change of tone in the Left-wing media’s coverage between his administration and the current one.' | Writes DouglasKMurray DouglasKMurray I should think so. The current president does not incitr mobs to attack the press. The 'tone' against a would be murderer is generally very different to that used for a non violent person.
