Demand Adequate Conditions For Hundreds Stranded At US-Mexico Border (Mexico: UA 231/16)
Hundreds of displaced Haitians, Africans and internally displaced Mexicans are stranded in the Mexican cities of Tijuana and Mexicali, many awaiting appointments with US Customs and Border Protection across the border. Many are in precarious conditions without adequate shelter, security and psychological support. Some of them, as well as Central Americans from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, could be at risk of being deported to situations of risk if official asylum screening is not improved.
Amnesty International is concerned about the fairness of proceedings leading to the trial and conviction of Leonard Peltier, an Ashinabe-Lakota Native American who was convicted of murdering two FBI agents.
