The Trump administration has expelled nearly 9,000 unaccompanied children from the United States. In the last six months, 6,700 migrant children have been deported. A federal court order says at least 6,700 migrant children who came to the southern border without their parents have been expelled from the country. They sought refuge in the United States in violation of the Emergency Policy. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a public health order approving the expulsion in mid-March. The US media Bangla Press reported this news.

The Trump administration has stopped publishing the number of deported children since June. At the time, they said, about 2,000 children had been deported. Immigration lawyers, however, said the number was much higher. This number of deportations was not clear until last Friday.

The Trump administration took this step by scrapping decades of practice of protecting children from trafficking and giving them the opportunity to seek refuge in immigration courts in the United States.

The Trump administration’s new border rules came into force on March 21 this year. Their claim is that the new rules are designed to prevent immigration holding benefits and prevent the spread of the coronavirus among the U.S. public. Since then, U.S. officials have begun expediting the evacuation of others, including children without immigrant guardians.
