    Trump's caravan problem isn't which people are coming, but what kind of country America will choose to be

    Michelle Brané, an advocate with the Women’s Refugee Commission, notes that, compared to Mexico, the U.S. asylum system has adequate resources for dealing with the influx of Central American migrants, but refuses to honor its obligations under domestic and international law to process their claims in U.S. courts. “It's an incredible abdication of responsibility,” she says, following a recent visit to the border. “And I can't imagine how they're not responsible for creating a situation in which people are going to die."

    “People are going to start dying because we are creating this backlog,” she said. “The US government is making no effort, and this they have acknowledged. There is no plan in place to increase capacity for processing people. They are not even trying to do that.”

    The letter was sent in response to reports that the administration is prohibiting the use of well-defined technical terms such as “sexual and reproductive health,” “comprehensive sexuality education,” and other terms relating to sex, sexuality, and gender. This unprecedented proposal undermines nearly 25 years of global consensus and endangers decades of progress on global health. The organizations call on Pompeo to reverse and prevent any guidance or policy that prohibits free speech or weakens commitments to global health.

    Michelle Brané, the director of migrant rights and justice at the Women’s Refugee Commission, has spent time at the facility and describes the conditions as jail-like. “It’s literally a giant warehouse with [people in] cages, and in the middle they have set up porta-potties and these sink contraptions,” Brané told Quartz. “The president has been talking about wanting to increase detentions. It doesn’t surprise me that they’re looking for ways to squeeze more people into the space they have.”

    Leah Chavla, policy adviser at the Women’s Refugee Commission, said the proposed regulations are concerning because the government has violated the Flores agreement before. Over the summer, for instance, Shiloh Treatment Center near Houston came under scrutiny for injecting immigrant children in its care with powerful psychiatric drugs without proper consent. A federal judge ordered the government in July to stop the practice, though attorneys allege it’s still continuing.

    “They’re saying, ‘Trust me, trust us, we’re going to self-regulate,’ ” Chavla said. “It’s just expecting everybody to place blind trust on them, and I don’t think that’s warranted.”
