Young Migrants Expelled To Home Country During Coronavirus Pandemic

Young migrants and asylum seekers usually come to the U.S.-Mexico border and are placed with relatives while their cases go to court.

Yet during the coronavirus pandemic, the Trump administration expelled several minors, with 600 in April alone.

According to the HuffPost, they were allowed to turn these minors away because of an emergency declaration during the pandemic.

Border agencies said they have to restrict asylum claims and border crossing to prevent COVID-19 from spreading.

The children are typically placed in cells, fingerprinted and then given a medical exam before sent home.
