Mental Health Challenges of Immigrants
Pre-migration trauma, dangerous & difficult migration journey and having to cope in a new environment. Take their toll on mental health.
The Mexico US border is out of control. The illegal immigrants crossings are the highest in this nations history.
What brought the migrants here in the first place was their flight from Socialist countries. These countries were voted in to bring about economic reforms and less poverty and crime. Instead these governments where the leaders had unlimited power became countries with dictators. Where human rights were not respected, political prisoners and government corruption became normal. Where inflation, jobs and the socialist economy made living conditions unbearable.
Are we creating situations of homelessness and poverty. Where the new immigrant becomes a second class citizens with lower pay and less chances. For Human trafficking and drugs. Are we creating for the new immigrant the very same nightmare situation that they have escaped from?
Quote from a migrant
"It looks strange to be alive and wander the streets as if one was dead. A city that was always known and famous for its high temperature and it boasted of a happy and cheerful people, suddenly transformed into a ghostly and horrifying hell."
Many of those that walk thousands of miles through dangerous terrain are doing so because they have suffered through violations of human rights from socialist countries. They are not walking this distance for exercise.
When they arrive what becomes of them?
