For my systemic injustice showcase paper I chose the topic that stood out most to me, and this was the story that I covered last week about over 2,000 Honduran immigrant children being deported alone without their parents. This story really hit close to home with me, and it even caused me to do more research on the issue. The U.S has been using the Covid headlines in the news to suppress this issue where they are sending thousands of children “home”, to a country where they have absolutely nothing. Some, if not most, of these children were even born in the U.S, so when they are being deported “home”, they are actually just as much as a foreigner in that country as we Americans would be. This is very impactful on the lives of the children because they are essentially just left to fend for themselves in their “home” country, where they actually have less than they did in the United States. After reading this last week and doing some more research, I truly do not think there is a possibility of righting this wrong. These kids have been getting deported since March and honestly who knows what has happened to them since they have been sent back to these countries with deteriorating governments and economies. This is also just an overall morally wrong action/law because how can someone just send a unaccompanied child into a country that is completely foreign to them? I also think this relates to the overall concept that we learned in this class of “one” and the “other”. In this example the U.S would be the “one” and the immigrant children would be the “other”. Just because these immigrant children are different and did not come into the country by the right way, by no means there choice, they are placed into that category of being the “other”, and thus have been deported back to their “original” country. This overall is just an unjust and unmoral issue and it needs to be stopped. This issue however has not gotten much attention in the media and that also confuses me on the issue. I just think this should receive more attention and also be fixed because this is a very unjust act of systematic injustice when examined.
