U.S. Resumes Vicious Cycle of Deportations: El Mundo, El Salvador
While the issue of illegal immigration from Mexico gets most of the media attention, nations across Latin America have their share of people risking life and limb to get to the U.S. This editorial from El Salvador’s El Mundo reflects frustration with U.S. handling of Salvadorans that in many cases, know of no home other than the United States.
The El Mundo editorial says in part:
On Monday, the usual work in the country resumed. Thus the operatic routine of deportations from the United States, a dramatic reminder of the cycle of migration – exodus and then expulsion – of thousands of our fellow citizens.
This is a permanent vicious cycle. People look for opportunities outside, cannot be legalized, commit an infraction and are then expelled, only to try again and continue the cycle, despite the difficulties they know so well about the tragic route through Mexico. These are stories of sadness, constant pain and divided families on both sides of this drama.
