Warga New York Melakukan Aksi Menentang Penahanan Migran


BINTANGNEWS.com –  Media Presstv berbahasa Inggris melaporkan,” Puluhan pengunjuk rasa berbaris dengan roda bayinya menuju pusat penahanan migran di New York City pada hari Minggu untuk berdemonstrasi
menentang kebijakan imigrasi Presiden AS Donald Trump.

Pemerintahan Trump telah dikecam keras karena perlakuannya terhadap para migran di perbatasan selatan setelah 2.300 anak-anak dipisahkan dari orang tua mereka selama pertengahan April dan Mei.

Presiden AS mengumumkan pencabutan kebijakan setelah ia menandatangani perintah eksekutif pada hari Rabu.

Eric Adams, asal Brooklyn Borough President, menjelaskan, bahwa multikulturalisme di kota itu menjadikannya sebagai titik sakit bagi mereka yang berubah untuk protes.

"Ketika kami menyaksikan seorang anak direnggut dari orang tua dari Meksiko, setiap anak yang ada di sini kita melihatnya dan mengatakan 'itu tidak dapat terjadi, bukan di Amerika yang kita ingin menjadi dari bagian'," katanya.

Trump's administration has been roundly condemned for its treatment of migrants at the southern border after 2,300 children were separated from their parents between mid-April and May.

The US President announced a reversal of the policy after he signed an executive order on Wednesday.

Eric Adams, the Brooklyn Borough President, explained that the city's multiculturalism makes it such a sore point for those who turned out for the protest.

"When we watch a child being snatched from a parent from Mexico, every child that is here we look at it and say 'that can't happen, not in the America that we want to be a part of'," he said.***
