Today, Wednesday, October 21 at 2:00 p.m., the Ignatian Solidarity Network will broadcast the Kino Border Initiative (KBI) Children Seeking Asylum March in Nogales, Sonora.
This action is part of a KBI series to bring awareness to human rights issues surrounding the United States’ “Remain in México” policy and the struggle asylum seekers face at the border.
The policy requires asylum seekers who present themselves at U.S. ports of entry to remain in México for the duration of their immigration proceedings. Many other organizations at the border who work with asylum seekers are holding similar actions to bring awareness to the inhumane and unlawful dismantling of the asylum system.
Next week’s march will call attention to the subsequent consequences this has had on children.
