    Trump Administration Surveilled Migrant Family Separation Protests

    Katharina Obser with the Women’s Refugee Commission said in the statement that the Trump administration’s family separation policy has deeply traumatized migrants.

    “That federal agencies knew of this trauma and yet chose to disregard it in the name of an abhorrent deterrence strategy is unconscionable,” Obser said. “There is still so much more we need to fully uncover to understand what this administration did and didn’t do to inflict and subsequently address the harm caused by its family separation policies, but these documents re-emphasize that we must hold them to account.”

    She added, “Forcing women and girls who become pregnant as a result of rape [to carry the pregnancy] is despicable.”

    Katharina Obser of the Women's Refugee Commission said many of the ideas in the report would only exacerbate the problem.

    "It is long overdue for the government to invest its existing funds in a comprehensive, legal and humane approach to protection at our borders," she said, but many of the report's recommendations "would do little to better care for vulnerable families and children seeking protection in the United States."

    “The idea that we should be eliminating critical protections in our laws that are there to protect children and ensure that asylum seekers are protected is deeply problematic,” said Katharina Obser, senior policy advisor for migrant rights at the Women’s  Refugee Commission. “It’s been incredibly well documented that DHS’s current family detention practices are traumatizing and harmful, and to allow families to be detained for an even longer period of time is really concerning.”

    A study last month by the Women’s Refugee Commission, a U.S.-based charity, said refugees and migrants trying to reach Italy through Libya were victims of horrific sexual violence.

    The abuse was commonplace along routes through North Africa: at border crossings and check points, during random stops by armed groups, and when migrants were kidnapped and held for ransom, said the report, titled “More Than One Million Pains”.

    WORLD Asylum for sale: Male refugees victimized by sexual violence say officials wanted bribes to help

    It is not clear how many male refugees worldwide have been victims of sexual violence, though experts say the numbers are certainly high. Stigma and a lack of support often stop men from reporting what they have been through. A recent report by the Women's Refugee Commission listed sexual violence as a reason males leave their home countries to try and reach Europe, and found it was also "commonplace" against boys and men along smuggling routes in North Africa.

    Employees of the Women's Refugee Commission interviewed survivors in Italy and, among other sources, spoke with crews of rescue ships. "On their journey through the desert, many refugees are kidnapped by human traffickers and armed groups or taken to official prisons," Sarah Chynoweth, the study's author, explained. She confirmed that violence, including sexual torture, is common in these camps: "It is filmed in order to put pressure on families to send money for their relatives' release. Those who cannot pay are re-sold or murdered."

    In the hopes of making migration routes safer and improving responsive care, the commission, a rights advocacy group for displaced women and children, took a deeper look (pdf) at the experiences of men and boys who identify as males, as well as gay, transgender, and bisexual men. They found that while sexual violence is one of many reasons thousands of migrants and refugees leave their homes for Europe, it is also something they encounter—sometimes repeatedly—along the route.
