Shadow Immigration System

De Ferrier, In Desperation. 2020

Covid 19 has hit the hotel business really hard but has also left an opening for this Shadow Immigration System. This system takes children from the border crossing to hotels, which are sometimes many hours away, allowing the private contractors to circumnavigate the asylum rules. The plan is to return the children to the countries that they came from as quickly as possible, preventing them from joining established family members here in the US.
