Conditions at the U.S./Mexico Border
Northern Kentucky University
"There are 50,000 individuals a year that are being detained at the U.S./Mexico border, often seeking asylum from their country due to violence. Once detained, families are separated and are not given adequate care while detention center conditions deteriorate. The purpose of this study is to understand what asylum seekers endure when coming to the U.S./Mexico border. In this study I will interview individuals that have been detained, have had loved ones detained and social services workers on the front lines. This study will be of interest for human rights activist, policy and law makers and all U.S. citizens to shed light on the atrocities happening at the border."
