In 2019, President Donald J. Trump upended decades of U.S. policy and announced that America would not be accepting asylum seekers who travel through Mexico. He effectively banned the thousands of men, women, and children from Central America looking for refuge. As American asylum policy has grown more restrictive under the Trump administration, thousands have been stranded at borders and within the judicial system. This volume features reporting on the human consequences of the growing immigration crisis, exploring the factors that drive asylum seekers to American borders and the long, complicated path that awaits them as they attempt to find a safe haven. Media literacy questions and terms further challenge readers to assess how journalistic principles are applied to the coverage of this vulnerable group.
