(Families that don’t claim fear of persecution will be deported.) As of September 1, the Trump administration has sent more than 42,000 migrants back to Mexico to await decisions on their asylum claims — but almost 458,000 families have been arrested at the border between October 2018 and August 2019 as unprecedented numbers of families flee rampant crime, violence, and corruption in Central America.
